    I am figuring out I am not a patient person. I should feel this excitement for Christmas yet it is the eggs somewhere in mail land that has me super excited. They shipped right away on Monday and the tracking has not left any indication where in the world they could be after Tuesday. And the web says expected delivery for the 21 which was 2 days ago.

    Anyone else have a hard time waiting?

    I'm sorry! That is so frusterating! But I totally understand. When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I said "EGGS!" I ordered two batches this week, and they both got here by Thursday. I figured it would be a long wait with the chaos of shipping around the holidays!

    They are probably fine, sometimes there are delayed flights and with christmas so close i can imagine they are dealing with lots of packages.
    But if you want to know more, i would contact the post office, just to make sure they haven't been lost amongst all the other holiday packages.
    Tracking can be a pain, sometimes it just never updates.
    They don't even call it tracking anymore, now its "delivery confirmation" [​IMG]

    Good luck receiving your eggs and with your hatch!

    I am going to try and wait until our mail is delivered and then call the local post office just in case.

    Packaged beautifully.... in the incubator now... If you know your Post Master, they will gladly not sit on those eggs! Priority mail scares them, so I'm told [​IMG] My mail lady told me that Hot2Pot wrote so much on the box that she didn't dare put it in the back of her truck with the rest of her packages.... good thing she didn't -- I know where she lives!!!!!
