I received my hatching eggs from pips&peeps today!

I got 18 Wheaten and Blue Wheaten Ameraucana eggs, all but 1 egg made it unscathed.

This is what I came home to,

Jean did an amazing job making sure the eggs didn't get jostled around, the egg carton was wrapped in bubble wrap and the eggs were all individually wrapped in tissue paper in the carton.

The eggs are all gorgeous, some are sky blue, some are baby blue.

1 egg didn't make it.

It was in the corner of the carton, USPS must have banged it them around a little too much.

The eggs are settling now overnight, I'm going to put them in the incubator first thing tomorrow morning. I can't wait to start incubating!

Don't worry about it! I was surprised that out of all the eggs I had shipped my way I only lost 1. L0L.

Thanks so much Jean! I can't wait for my babies.

Do you know what the percentage of Wheaten to Blue Wheaten birds will be?

Today, day 19, came a lot quicker than I expected, with some unexpected happenings too... I just went to check temp/humidity and I realized I have a PIP! Looks like one of the W/BW Ameraucana babies wants to come into the world a little early!!

Now I've just gotta find some other great bloodlines for some biodiversity next year.
