    Well done. When are you going to start incubating?

    I got an enquiry last year from some in Western Australia who wanted forty- but I wasnt set up for that many- or prepared to ship that many day olds to the other side of the country. I know its done all the time over there- but I didnt feel comfortable doing it. The money would have been great- but there was no way I could have gotten 40 to hatch close enough together to send all at once. So glad your lady can come pick them up- and good you got a deposit too.

    I'm going to start collecting eggs within the next few days. I figure that I'll put 45 eggs into the incubator. That way, with any infertile eggs, any that don't make it I should still end up with 30 and then some. I'm telling you, word of mouth is really the best kind of advertising there is. I've said it for years. That's how I sold many of my parrot babies when I was breeding parrots. I'm also going to be in on the Easter craze this year! LOL
