    Got a call at 5:30 am that my eggs were at the post office. Lucky me was passing right by on my way home from work so I stopped an got em. All 24 eggs arrived unbroken. Great packing job Bargain. 2600 miles and not a crack! Hope to get some fuzzy butts out of these.

    Hi [​IMG] ,
    I put 11 Lavendar Orpington eggs in the incubator on the 24th and yesterday I candled them and 7 look real good with moving defined embryos 2 look like maybe and two where so clear I took them out and cracked them open and they were blanks. I hope you have Fantastic Good Fortune with yours [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Eggs are in the incubator. Now I need a little luck [​IMG]

    This is the first time in years that I have tried. Last time was right after they came out with the Roll-X incubator, I think that was in the late 70's or early 80's.

    Yeah I know [​IMG] [​IMG]
