    Wow! What an expensive lesson I am learning...Had 2 shipments sent this month, brought to my door from my great postman(who I am sure thinks I'm a little cuckoo). I brought them in and quickly opened them up ,[​IMG] all were wet under the bubble wrap. I knew this didn't look good but, I put them in the incubator anyway..Well, Nothing is viable. 6 Golden-Laced Polish and 6 Polish Frizzle eggs from breeder stock..CRUD!!! It's been in the upper 90's in KY for the last 21 day...Anyone else had shipping issues?

    Yes, I bought Split Lav silkie eggs and not one candled good. I think they got cooked too.

    But, Thank goodness the seller is replacing them. [​IMG] Hopefully I have better luck.
