    I shipped a dozen fresh eggs to my Dad, overnight thru the post office.
    He raised chickens as a kid, so I thougt, he would like this. He hears lots of chicken stories from me. .... So I get an email, he says, I got the eggs, I put them in my bed under the electic blanket, when will they hatch? ???????
    I call him and tell him they are fresh for eating! I don't even have any roosters~
    this is just so funny, I have to tell someone!

    Glad your enjoying the story, I am still chuckling over it.
    I forgot to mention my Dad is 83.
    I will try to get him some chicks, that was a good idea. It will keep him busy all winter taking care of them! give him something to do!

    LOL. That's a great story. I'd let your dad know he should eat them up and you'll send him some fertile ones... pre incubated! (chicks that is :p)
