    MY DOMINIQUE EGGS CAME THIS AFTERNOON!!! My hubby is getting our makeshift incubator warmed up & ready to put them in tonight!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm like my 5 year old on Christmas morning right now. lol... [​IMG] The guy I bought them from did an AMAZING job on packing them, none cracked or anything! I bought 15+ & he sent me 18 too! I'll update & post bator pics once we get them in there tonight!

    I put them in my incubator as soon as I get them I just don't turn on the turner right away. The eggs can warm up while settling. Just the way I do it.
