I won an auction for Cochin eggs on 2/26 she shipped 12 on 2/28. USPS was supposed to deliver them on 3/2 they got here today 3/4 and I let them sit for 6 hrs oly to settle. Put them in at about 6pm and wonder what are the chances for them?
I just had a really nice hatch (13 out of 17) from shipped eggs that took 5 days - 5 cold, wintry, New England days - to get here. I settled them for only about 8 hours because of the delay in shipping. Another batch that went into that same hatch, and had only taken 2 days to get to me, only yielded one live chick (out of 10 shipped eggs). There are many variables to consider. I would definitely set them and
