    We won two eBay auctions on the same day.

    One is for my daughter: SQ White Silkies

    And the other for me: LF Buff Orpingtons from hinkjc

    They were both shipped the same day. One from Indiana and teh other from Pennsylvania.

    Which will win.

    Am placing a poll on this.

    You may vote for IN, PA or a tie. Lets have some fun!

    Oh, we have no tracking number on the Silkie eggs.

    They arrived this morning, but I missed them at the post office. They placed my mail in the box before 8am. Yet did not place the package announcement until 9:23. Have not heard from the Indiana eggs yet. No tracking number available on them. Will post when they arrive.

    Have a slight delay today. A duckling hatched but his two partners have not. If they are not hatched by after church I will move the two eggs to the tote brooder and set the other eggs. Will set the PA with the IN and see which hatch first. Maybe I should set up another poll race for that?

    We won two eBay auctions on the same day.

    One is for my daughter: SQ White Silkies from jmingione

    And the other for me: LF Buff Orpingtons from hinkjc

    They were both shipped the same day. One from Indiana and the other from Pennsylvania. We had a contest/poll to see who would arrive first. PA won by a day.

    Now we are having a 21 day (hopefully) poll/contest on which will hatch first. These will be set today in a Genesis incubator. Which eggs will hatch first, hinkjc Buff Orpingtons from Pennsylvania or jmingione White Silkies from Indiana?

    Place your vote today. I will post what I find on candling days. At the end I will post how many of each we have hatch.
