    I am so pleased that I finally have a decent hatch on shipped eggs!! I received eggs from the monkey mama for the aussie relief auction. Today, I'm the proud mama of 6 little EE babies!! [​IMG] Unfortunately, there were no blues [​IMG] But there is one that is a very dark reddish-chocolate colored one, very pretty!! The others are either brown and yellow or just yellow, and of course all have eyeliner and racing stripes! There are 3 other eggs in the bator, but after candling, only 2 of those started developing. All 3 are not viable, so my hatch is done. 1 of them didn't develop at all, so I guess I have a 75% hatch, on shipped eggs!!! I'll post pics tomorrow, it's a bit too late right now! [​IMG]
