    I woke up this morning to peeping in the bator! Looked in the window and was amazed. I had 12 new BO fuzzy butts! I left for work and came home to find a total of 17! 3 are Miss Prissy's BBS Orps and 13 are from another person. Miss Prissy included a test egg in her box and it hatched as well. I have no idea what the breed is though! I doesn't look anything like an orp. It is a darker buff color with a real dark brown on its back.
    I had one more BO try to hatch, but didn't get completely out of the shell last night and it was too late when I found it this morning.
    I had 24 BO eggs and 15 BBS eggs in the incubator. 17 hatched, lost one before hatching, 6 infertile and still have 15 waiting in the bator. That is 44% hatch rate so far on shipped eggs!
    Now if the turkey eggs from Miss Prissy do as well, I'll be thrilled!
    Thanks again Miss P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats, you'll have to let us know about the turkey eggs. And you know you'll have to show us some pics.
