Due to miscommunication (I'm not here to slam anyone- just a question) a box of hatching eggs was shipped last week tuesday but I wasn't told about it until an email on wed or thursday and I was not home till yesterday after PO closed. I picked the box up at the PO and it REEKS. It's so bad that my postmistress sealed it up in a plastic bag. The box looks fine- no real damage to it. I haven't opened it up yet, waiting for my camera to charge.... The questions- is there any chance that any of the eggs will hatch? Could the extremely smelly egg have contaminated the rest by smell alone? I really wanted to try out these chicks. The eggs should be extremely dark and I don't know if I will be able to candle them- if they are as dark as my maran's eggs I won't be able to.
