I know this is a hatching thread but I figure the people that might be most interested in this would be on this thread. So...

I am traveling from Nashville, TN to Akron, Ohio and back the 14-17 of May. Is anyone interested in having eggs or chicks transported along this route for the same money that you would pay the Post office but with superior care taken of your eggs/chicks? I have suggested this to my DH and he is thinking about it, but I thought I would run it by here in the meantime to see how much interest is in it.

All pickups would need to be prepaid for with the person selling the eggs or birds. I don't want to handle your money. The seller will be packing the eggs/chicks so they may still want a handling fee to cover the box and packing I am content with the shipping portion that the post office will charge.

My daughter is moving to Akron Ohio. I am renting a pickup and a closed trailer to move her stuff but they didn't have the size I needed for 4 days time. I had to go up a size and I will have this space especially after I drop her stuff off. I was just going to pull an empty trailer home. So it occurred to me that I might be able to be of service to some of the members here and make some money too. Especially, if you have been wanting someone's chicks who won't ship Post Office.

Well I am 6 days till Lockdown. I am going to float my eggs and cross my fingers then. I have 8 Cream Legbars, 16 Speckled Sussex, 2 Coronation Sussex, 2 Americanas, 12 mixed banty (Cochin, Silkey, D'Uccle, Serama). I am hoping to at least get some Sussex and some Cream Legbars to hatch. I had several temp spikes at first and may have cooked some of the eggs before I got the temps to stabilize. I would love to get a little banty hen to hatch too. Hopefully they will hatch on time (10th) because I am going out of town on the 14th.
I got a friend who can look after the hatchlings but he has never hatched any birds. He has always gotten his from the hatcheries.
