    THey came in. THree of every color. They are sooo small. The smallest is just 21gram and the biggest 34gram. I might have to put a quail rack in the turner for the three tiny black ones. Right now the are resting small side down/large up in a egg carton in one of my kitchen cabinets. I will set as close to midnight as i can. Oh i hope i can get a self blue pullet or two those are my favs.My three year old , Samantha, was with me when i unpacked them.She asked me "Mommy is there a baby bird in there? Dont hurt the baby chickies" Then she started petting the eggs and said "I love you baby chicky"
