    [​IMG] they are here and I already took the good ones and set them in the tray to relax for a day. I definitely need a small incubator. These will look funny when I put them in. It will hold 14 trays and I'm only using 1.

    I have 71 eggs to set and had to use a few cracked ones to make a sandwich. Unfortunately the carton with the Italians was damaged. All eggs were nice and cold (17 degrees this morning) so I am really curious to see what the cold will do to them. None were frozen.

    Good luck on the hatch! Wow, 17 degrees is pretty cold for eggs. But out of 71 eggs, you should still have a lot of babies hatching!

    Bummer on the Italians! [​IMG] but as long as you let them sit in room temp, good results should happen. Good Luck my friend! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    How in the heck do such tiny birds lay eggs that size? They are almost twice the size of the bob eggs I got from JJ
