    I don't usually get upset over chickens but I bought 6 porcelain bantam eggs from My Pet Chicken. They arrived in perfect shape. I put them in the incubator. A week later I candled them. Every one of them had developed. I was absolutely thrilled. I was and am extremely happy with what I bought. It was "NOT" thier fault at all. They were very professional and I would buy from again. I wanted to have my own lavender line with a project I had in mind. I thought this all out over the summer and seeing that we have bad winters I would have kept them down cellar where it's about 64 degrees until spring. Anyway....we lost our power TWICE and I lost every one of them. Two pipped but died in shell. I am just so upset over this. I really wanted some chicks for my new line. [​IMG] I wanted only two but would have kept them all had they hatched. I am just sick over it.

    I'm so sorry. Perhaps you can try again with the temperatures rise this spring?

    I will probably do that. Maybe I will buy them at a meet. Thanks. Sighs wondering if sping will ever come.
