    for the first time ever I ordered some eggs (ebay/ showgirls)
    they were supposed to come with a heat pack. well the person did not put it in.
    when I got the eggs they were cold so I let them warm up(room temp)
    then gave them to my girl.I candled them same night and I noticed an air bubble floating around on two-ALL the eggs looks like there is a "watermark" around the bottom of the eggs(inside) when I opened them they were randomly placed in the box packed in peanuts all were on their sides and two eggs look chipped and really beat up.the eggs seem a bit large for silkie/showgirls eggs Ive seen a lot of silkie/showgirl eggs but these are huge

    just a bit worried I got ripped off im a little ticked the heat pack was forgotten am I wasting my time? I have never dealt with eggs that did not come from my girls.. :/[​IMG][​IMG]

    Well, you have them so why not give them a try? Hope they are what you ordered and that they are viable.

    Go for it! You can actually incubate eggs from grocery store fridges. I have two growing in my incubator right now, and they're chugging right along, despite refrigeration. As long as they weren't frozen, viability isn't heavily impacted.
