    I got 3 out of 5 shipments of eggs today. So 43 so far and about 30 more to come [​IMG] this addiction never stops [​IMG] So far I got 19 BLRW eggs from ChickenHawk, all arived safe and unbroken, 7 sultan eggs from chickn, none broken here either, and another 18 from Tiffayh, and all of her's arrived beautifuly packaged and unbroken as well. Luckily I had a BO go broody about a week ago, so she moved inside and is now setting on 12 eggs, and hopefully my genesis will be here tomorrow so I can move these other guys in there, and I have 14 eggs in my hova bator on week 2. Wish us luck [​IMG]! I'll keep you updated [​IMG]!

    On a side note, you might want to blur out your real name and address in the photos. [​IMG]

    Geez! I thought I had it bad! [​IMG] I think hubby would be just a tad upset if I ordered any more eggs right now. He keeps asking when are we going on vacation this summer and I just keep putting him off by telling him.....well, not for a while yet, I can't leave the bator or babies!! :eek: I do want to know how the BLRW's do though. If they do well for you, I might try and order some. [​IMG]

    Edited to say I might try and order some......AFTER vacation! [​IMG]

    Wow! You have it bad. LOL I got my 1st incubator yesterday and have my 1st order of eggs coming in the mail this week. Plus, one of my hens I got yesterday just laid an egg this afternoon. Good luck with all those eggs! I hope I don't get that bad. LOL

    I got mine from ChickenHawk, he has some nice birds. I didn't buy them from him though, we swaped eggs. So maybe you could just do a swap your husband couldn't get mad at that, he'd think your sending out eggs [​IMG]

    Quote:Nope they aren't expensive at all. I got mine from Chickn, and it was $18 including shipping, and I'm sure you could always find some on ebay or eggbid, or ovabid [​IMG].
