    Well, phooey. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I just candled, and it looks like I have one peachick that may make it. 2 didn't begin to develop, 2 were quitters, and 1 is hard to tell- could be still going, but could be a goner. If the one makes it, it may have trouble hatching, because the membrane is only about 45% attached- there are distinct lines indicating the multiple drops from different angles the box went through on its way here.

    If I get one bird, it needs to be a pullet!! I'm stunned given the stellar packing job, but this is the kind of detachment you can tell was shipping abuse. [​IMG]
