    OK, so my first hatching eggs I got were from Hinkjc. She packed the eggs
    in under so many layers that you could have dropped the box out of a B52
    and not cracked a single one. It took 8 days to get the eggs out the box.

    Today, waiting on my porch was this box of future babies from SpeckledHen.
    As I opened it I had to put it down because I was laughing so hard.
    Just look at the pics. Speckled I think you might have forgotten the
    "Men at Work" sign with the blinking light because every other label was there.
    She even put a cute little owl return label. [​IMG]

    Inside it got even better. Each egg was individually wrapped with bubble wrap
    and taped. Plus she labeled each egg both with tape and on the egg itself.
    I cannot believe the amount of time you must have taken to do this.
    I'm going to feel bad unwrapping it. Even your handwriting is pretty.

    Men, this is why we need women. [​IMG]

    I'm just gonna put the whole box in the bator. [​IMG]

    The bator/brooders await:
    Hinkjc's Buffs and our Leghorn mutts running around like little banshees:

    Uh, Don, you did unpack those, right, LOL?? I have to ask-any broken? Cracked? Hey, we aim to please. Never want it to be said that I was the reason the eggs didn't hatch! [​IMG]

    I don't see any yellow or goo so I'm sure they are ok.

    Me and Drumstick are heading out to Trick or Treat now. We have full
    gorilla suits so we're gonna stay away from the eggs.

    BOO!!
