OK I finally got my eggs from our little trade. They were shipped last monday and last tuesday. One box was crushed, the other one looked OK. Amazingly, I had eight out of twelve eggs make it out of the crushed box, and nine out of twelve out of the other box. I am mad though, bacause let me tell you these girls packed the boxes very well, and they had fragile all over them, but still this one was so smushed!! Here is what I saw when I opened it, and I thought they were all gone. So, can I still set them? I put eggs in my bator on friday, and i dont havea hatcher. I really really want to try these, should I get a hatcher, (yes yes yes ) or just say its close enough? Also, is there any way to candle them now and see if the air cells are messed up or the yolks scrambled? I only use a flashlight.
