Yep total newbie question here. A little backstory: we stumbled upon a breeding trio of euskal oiloa a few months ago. We had never had a roo before, but he is very sweet and so are his 2 gals. We would really like to capitalize on this breed. They are so beautiful! We ordered 5 straight run chicks (2 weeks old now) and today one of the girls from the original trio laid her FIRST egg! I'm almost sure it's fertile because we've seen the roo...well you know. We don't have an incubator yet but we will soon. My question is about shipping eggs and such. Would someone kindly run down this process for me? After its laid, what is the timeframe? Does it need to be incubated right away? How long does one have before it would be considered "unhatchable"? How do you know how "old" a fertile egg is once it is shipped to you? We have never had fertile eggs or incubated eggs (let alone shipped them) so I have many questions as we consider moving forward with this breed. Thanks!
