    I am setting 11 maybe 12 shipped eggs tonight and I am looking for some hatching buddies [​IMG] I am going to try and super glue the 12th egg as it has a slight crack [​IMG]

    I'm setting 2 dozen shipped eggs tomorrow.. so far, from the first dozen, 2 have hairline cracks.. I put some clear nail polish on the cracks.. figured it couldn't hurt!

    This is the second try with the split black orpington eggs. The first time around they got scrambled in the mail. What kind are you setting?

    Sounds like it will be a nice surprise. I hatched 19 mixed breeds and came out with some interesting chicks [​IMG]

    One dozen are black/blue/splash Ameraucanas.. the other dozen are black/blue/splash Orpingtons .. these are my first shipped eggs.. so I'm hoping none are scrambled too
