    Rant away, that's what we are here for.

    I ordered from two separate people last hatch. The box marked "fragile - hatching eggs" had the worst damage - one whole corner caved in.

    Not that this will help you at all, but by far the most porous eggs I ever set were 24 Easter Eggers. 23 hatched

    You can report negative feedback and ask that it be reviewed and removed.

    I heard that if they are marked they are treated worse intentionally and if that is true it's sad.

    I honestly think ebay is getting worse.

    I asked for no stickers last time and I had the best hatch I have ever had. Just paid a lot for nice eggs and asked for no stickers again.

    While y'all are talking about shipped eggs, thought I would throw this in. I read that if you ask for them to be marked, like 'fragile', then the post office X-Rays them. The X-ray kills the embryos, thus resulting in a bad hatch.

    SideWing - your new chicks are cute. Maybe the person you got the chicks from got the parents from Urch?

    The show Wyandotte you posted was very pretty, but I really want some of these walking around the yard:

    This is Jacqui Moore's from the UK. I'm on a waiting list to get some chicks from recent UK imports in the fall/spring.

    I agree but I've never gotten this on any of my shipped eggs. I did have one shipped egg that had the word "new" written on it...I thought "ok, as opposed to the others...?...are they old?" That one turned out infertile anyway.

    You should have seen the pea eggs!! Filthy! The guy does not collect eggs. He goes around the pen and picks up laid eggs and puts them in a make shift nest he made, thats on the ground, in the center of the pen. He gave them to me in a plastic container with a lid. I almost fell over when I opened the container! They stunk and were covered in crap. I washed them with a wet paper towel. Then polished them with a dry paper towel. Honest to God, I had no hope in any of them hatching! (As I sit here with 3 chicks, lol).
