    Well, my big flop (the death of my chicks) gets another chance. Julie (whom I purchased my eggs from) sent me more and so I get a 2nd chance at having my Blue Andalusians. I also ordered Blue Jersey Giants from another lady that will be going in. I won 6 on Ebay, she sent me 8 and 4 were broken. What a bummer, waiting to hear back from her, $20 for eggs you expect a better packing job. They were not even in a carton, just wrapped together in a package and put in a box.

    My eggs are sitting right now and will be going in around noon tomorrow. If this batch works I will be so excited. I have had the worse of luck with shipped eggs, but I am now trying it a different way, with more patience.

    Is anyone else putting eggs in tomorrow?
    Are they shipped?

    We can track our success, or flop together.

    I put two Wyandotte eggs and one EE under a Golden Dutch bantum today. She is so tiny, that's all that she can cover. We don't have a rooster for her, so her eggs are never fertile.[​IMG]

    I put my eggs in 8 days ago but since they are muscovies maybe they will hatch around the same time as yours! I would love some people to share the nail biting with!

    Nail biting is what it is going to be. I know I will be a nervous wreck hoping these guys hatch and come out right. A lot of times I tell myself no more ordering and having eggs shipped, but then there is always that one type, or color, or breed. [​IMG] I then end up trying again and again and again.

    So here we all go again. You all ready? Tomorrow is day 1 and the waiting begins. I am putting 30 eggs in all together. That is 4 Jersey Giants, 12 Blue Andalusian and 14 of my own eggs.

    The Jersey Giants and the Andalusian are my shipped eggs.

    I put mine in a couple days ago, they are due on May 10th. This is my first hatch. Even though mine are due a bit before yours I'd still love to join your thread!

    Countrybum I have one Blue Andalusian pullet, she is so sweet and pretty! I hope you have better luck this time around.
