    I just recieved 20 hatching eggs from a non BYC member.

    The box was intact, lined with tinfoil and surrounded with air
    bags and bubble wrap and filled in with packing peanuts
    and each egg was wraped in bubble wrap and they arrived
    without being broken. [​IMG] (man that was a lot of ands!) [​IMG]

    The mystery is this...On each end of the egg there is a letter.
    Some maked with an A and others marked with a J....both
    have some scribbling next to each letter. [​IMG]

    Could be which pen they came out of. Speckledhen lables hers by the hen name. Bamachicken puts a mark on hers S = splash M = mottled etc. I write a book on my eggs. LOL
