    Thats some new math I've never come accross before! But better too many than too few when it comes to chicken eggs right? Nice bonus!

    Well I wanted to make sure if something went wrong in shipping you'd have some to make up for it...lol. I like to get extras so I always try to send extras... [​IMG]

    Maybe I should have warned you...lol

    I hope you have a great hatch and nobody froze on the way !!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    do you know what breeds they are?

    jab has all sorts, some may be mixed and some may be pure. it's going to be the waiting game. it'll be exciting to see!

    You got room for all those in your bator...with the others that are coming?

    yep. going to put them in inside the cartons and lift alternating sides like shown here a week or so ago. (can't remember who posted it.)
    then as i go, any that are not veining or are clear, will get cleared out and then i can always throw the auto turner on if the numbers are right.

    no matter what, i'm just wondering about the two monster eggs! what he heck is Julie feeding these chickens!?!? they are all really big eggs.

    the eggs are more pretty than the pictures!

    LOL.... well the gals take after me an over-indulge at feeding time [​IMG]

    The really big ones are not double yolkers just in case anybody was wondering... atleast none that we have eaten have been. They're just nice and big!!

    I'm glad they arrived intact and I can stop fretting about them.

    Quote:Miss_Jayne is learning "Chicken Math" , Robin and I just about have it down. 10 extra eggs don't count, cause "You can't count your chickens before they are hatched"

    Another big Chicken Math error is that most people think 1 + 1 = 2 , if 1 is a standard and 1 is a bantam then 1 + 1 = 4 cause 3 Bantams = 1 Standard [​IMG]
