    My eggs haven't arrived. So they'll be in frozen limbo until Monday. The seller did put a heat pack in the box, so we'll see what happens. They are coming from 10 hours away and they were sent off at the TN post office on Thursday mid-morning. I really had high hopes that they would get here today. Incubator is all plugged in and stable.

    Now here I sit. Waiting and worrying.

    But I do so love my post office. They always call me when I'm expecting chicks - to let me know they've made it or not. These are our first eggs & the post master has her fingers crossed right along with me.

    I wonder how the Post Office keeps eggs in the winter. At night they should be in a building that is heated. During the day in a truck it's probably colder. But maybe not too cold if the driver has the heat on.

    Is this time of year a safe time to ship hatching eggs?
