    Ok this morning I set another batch of eggs. 2 dozen I got from a guy that raises RIR's so thats what they are on a whim I put 1 dozen eggs I got from an Amish grocery store just to see if any hatch and 1 is my neighbors EE pullet egg not sure if fertile but told her I would put it in and see what happens. Last batch I had shipped. 6 eggs that got scrambled in transit none hatched. My post office sucks. Not gentle with anything. I wont be doing that again. Dont trust the post office. Had 10 babies sent from Ideal 9 DOA on arrival last died 3 days later, so see what I mean.
