    It is so hard with shipped eggs. Sometimes the prettier the birds, the harder it is to get started. Good luck on your hatch! Keep us posted. And oh, just because one shipment didn't turn out well doesn't mean her eggs are not good. You never know what happens to shipped eggs. I have had people with zero or poor hatch, sent them replacement eggs and had great hatches. You never know with shipped, or rare varieties. Sure hope you get a good breeding start. We will ALL want to see the babies, and more pics as they grow up![​IMG]
