    mine are supposed to have a tracking on them and when i look it up it says they were accepted someweres in mo...i hope i get my eggs today and that they just havent been tracking them like they should be. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    edit: i emailed the person i ordered the eggs from to let her know whats going on with the tracking. i hope they get here soon as if they get here today like they are supposed to the oldest will be 8 days old and 9 when i put them in the bator. if they dont come till monday the oldest will be 11 days when i put them in the bator. at 10 days the fertility rate goes down but i will still put them in the bator because they can still hatch though. i'm nervous about my hatching as this is my first time.

    its my first time to and i am upset at the tracking of the postal service...if it is almost here then idk since there is no update on the tracking. haha i have an xbox 360 and needed a replacement part for it and the tracking for it was perfect but for the eggs its very very bad. i think its making me more worried than i should be

    Well the seller said they were 2 days old when she sent them on the 11th so that would make them about 8 days old if I get them on Monday. [​IMG]

    Here is hoping for the best...but hasn't done me any good yet.... [​IMG]
