    [​IMG] Well maybe a couple will hatch
    I ordered these, Delivery confirmation/Insured/pro packaged (only 2 were dented out of all 290)! Left Texas at 6:15am 11/1 & I recieved 11/2 2:20pm ($20 shipping/handling). Hand delivered by my awesome mail lady, (we exchange canned goods too) Hopefully these were transported the rest of the way good? [​IMG]

    Well 290 Chukar eggs.... Put them all in "my custom" individual eggs tray.... Put them in turned on my new incubator YEAH !

    UNTIL I pulled a "%#*!!" [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Yes after the first rotation, I miscalculated the angle of the egg turner then..... Spill over of about 21 cracked eggs on the bottom of my incubator.... [​IMG]

    Not to mention a bunch of non-cracked ones that failed to fall
    So I re-did the trays AGAIN the correct way..... very newbie [​IMG]

    I guess this is why they can't guarantee hatch rate

    Good luck with your hatch... [​IMG] I did Pheasant eggs.

    This is how they were delivered. There were a few cracked ones. They didn't have to travel far as I live near Ocala Florida and the eggs came from the Tampa area.

    [​IMG] I cannot believe they were not packed "better" ! I was thinking about doing pheasant in the near future, I won't be getting them shipped from Tampa [​IMG]
