Ugh, didn't pay attention to where eggs are coming from!!

    I placed an order yesterday through Papa's Poultry for some auto sexing OE and Cream Legbar hatching eggs. I was so excited to find the OE ones that I jumped on ordering them, as I hadn't had any luck locating chicks that I wasn't going to pay an arm and a leg for. I only ordered 6 eggs because I have a broody silkie, and she can't handle any more than that, and I have no incubator. I realized today that these eggs are coming from CA....and I'm in PA!!! I can only hope that some of them survive the USPS, and that I get at least one little pullet out of the hatch! Silly me for not even thinking to look at where they're located....argh.

    You will find that people have had great and horrible hatches regardless of how far the eggs have been shipped. Do your best and hope for the best.

    I just received a shipment of silkies and cream legbars from papas poultry. I'm in nj and this was during the crazy negative temps we had. All arrived safe and sound and I have veins in the ones I spot checked at day 4. Keep the faith and good luck!! :)
