Oh man @Hurley so sorry to hear about the eggs!!
Beautiful basket o' eggs @KYTinpusher
I've been in contact with the seller and they offered to ship out a fresh box, I'll cover shipping. Think that's nice of them. Can't fault their communication, have been great.
I've got quail eggs supposed to be coming this next week, hopefully those boxes fare well. Looking forward to quail this year. I've been googling the heck out of recipes for quail eggs and quail.
I'm looking into quail to also looking at pheasants
Oh man, you really need to send me some of those SLW. Those are some beautiful birds.
Hm, no special secret in particular, I can tell you that I *DONT* rotate my eggs back and forth while I store them for hatching. I sit them on the kitchen counter in a carton labeled "DO NOT EAT OR REFRIGERATE" and just pop em in the bator when I'm ready.
@Sally Sunshine Awe thanks! It means a lot! I post on the PA theead all the time and no one responds, so I just gave up. I skim/lurk though.

Ohhhh set day is so sloow to get here ! But then again i'm waiting on eggs so i need to be patient. so hard to do
Thanks I will post some pics for you to see if you'd like but the birds we have I'm finding are very flawed. They were bred by a man local to us and his stock was stunning but our cockeral has shown some aggressive behavior and he's on his last chance. The pullets aren't as friendly as I had hoped(one has a single comb) but mostly these chicks are an experiment for us to see how the chicks will turn out and if the aggression is passed down or heightened as it passes down. I have spoken to a few other people on BYC that have not had the lacing or aggression issues with their stock. We may try the breed again sometime if this experiment flops. Our cockeral is huge probably 12-15 lbs and the pullets are really big too so if the chicks turn out to have poor temperaments they will end up in the freezer. We are hoping to find a good heritage breed that can serve as a good meat bird as well as layers. So far my assessment of the ones we have is they're beautiful, but their eggs are kinda small, and they are a bit over the top with putting the rest of the mixed flock in their place, as well as any human aggressive bird belongs in the freezer.
