    I recently bought eggs on ebay from a memeber called "sandspoultry" on ebay. I was very sceptical about buying ebay eggs as my first hatch was horrible. I said what the hay I might as well try it one last time. I won 12 eggs for $23.00 from her. She sent 15 in case something where to go wrong "you know how USPS is right?" Well I been having problems with my hygrometer and had all these hay wired humidity and temp problems. I was going to unplug my bator and just try again. But some of my BYC friends said to see what happens and dont unplug it. ok fast forwarding to the review. Yesterday was day 19 and had 2 pips. Today is day 20 and the 2 pippers made it out and I have about 7 more eggs pipped. I totally reccommend this seller.

    Congrats on the hatch !!!

    Sharon(sandspoultry) has some very nice birds and is an excellent person too. I am sure you will be happy with the quality and health of the chicks.

    Glad to hear it!


    I highly recommend WicksNChicks. Kim's wonderful to work with (very communicative), and a super nice person. Terrific packaging, too.

    I would highly recommend ordering from her. She has some golden Lakenvelders listed right now that are BEAUTIFUL.

    Quote:Thanks. I was shocked to have 11 babies flopping around. Problem with 1 though is curled toes. He dont walk right when I did the ol' cardboard and bandaid thing. Would anything ese work? I dont have the heart to euthanize it if I can save it

    Quote:You can get sticky felt pads for it. They are the felt pads that you stick under stuff so you don't scratch shelves or tables. You can find them in the self/home department at Walmart or any other store. Get the thinnest ones and cut to the size you need. Put one under the foot with the toes straight and then another on top. Gently press together so the pads stick together between the toes. Should fall off in a couple days or remove. If the toes aren't straight, do it again.
