    I won one of the 24 hour auctions for some Maran eggs from Gina. They arrived today, and they box looked great. There was one very small dent on one corner, but the box was in great shape! WOO HOO!! All was looking good!

    My wife opened them up while I was at work, and she saw the first egg and there was a crack in it. [​IMG] Then a 2nd egg, it was also cracked. [​IMG] Not looking good now!!!

    Here are the 2 eggs:
    This first one is one of the most beautiful eggs I have ever seen!!

    Eggs 3 - 8 were in great shape! [​IMG] [​IMG]


    But egg 9 was leaking. [​IMG]

    Well 6 out of 9 isn't bad. We are excited to get these in the incubator!!

    Thanks Gina, it wasn't anything with your packing, I just think they threw this box around a lot!!!

    Day 1 tomorrow!!![​IMG]

    I'm glad I packed extras! I always agonize over the eggs once I mail them. Thanks for posting. Good luck at hatching!
