    dwegg Chillin' With My Peeps bator has been up and running since Sunday!!!!!! [​IMG] and running perfect temp. and humidity too!

    AARRGGHH! The postman came...BUT as I ran out to get them I noticed it wasn't my usual postie who I had discussed the arrival of the eggs ect and she was also excited for me and was going to look out for them...AND as I ran to the van THA Tother postie said, "Oh...EGGS?" and as she dug through the boxes on her back seat...there they were..on the bottom of the pile UPSIDE DOWN! [​IMG]

    As I write this I am SO bummed I could cry!

    14 Lemon Blue Cochin LF...and 7 BLRW

    I unpacked them and they are all ok but I can just imagine the ride they have had...they are probably scrammbled...but that is to be expected from the good ol' US PO!

    My 1st batch rode around all day set on its side even though the package clearly said "this end up". Now I call the day before to hold for pick up at the PO. They call me at about 8:30 am and I go get them. No more rides around the 'hood in the mail truck.
