    I have gotten 6 eggs so far. I owe another lady 6 more.
    Let me know how many you are interested in. I am averaging only like 1 a day or every other day.
    Here are the pictures of what my turkeys look like:

    I think I have shipped over a 1,000 eggs so I try my best to get them to their destination intact! I am glad these ones have arrived safely and that some postal employee did not see that it was 'live' and decide to use the package as a football!

    My postal lady knows exactly what they are and loves it when I come in! She asks how all of my chickens and such are doing and is really good about calling me as soon as she gets in the office for me to come get any peeps.

    A friend of mine (Alaina featured on my blog) hatched some of my eggs so far she put three under her broody turkey hen and those three have hatched. She put three in the incubator and all three of those have pipped. So that is 6 for 6. She has 6 more of my eggs but it will still be a little bit before those are due. (These eggs that she hatched were not shipped of course because she lives so close but I am hoping you have a 100% hatch rate as well.)

    We use our broody hens to hatch duck eggs for one of our daughters. Her ducks won't sit on them.

    Turkey eggs...Hmmm. I never thought of doing that. We always buy the turkey chicks. That might be kind of fun, to hatch them out. I never knew you could send/receive fertile eggs in the mail!

    Can't wait for andi's turkeys to hatch out! :)

    I went and seen the baby turkeys today that my friend hatched and they are cute! I got a picture of some that I plan on posting to my blog tomorrow. It looks like 5 out of the 6 took the Bourbon red colors and one took the Narragansett colors. She has them in with her pheasant babies that she hatched and the one dark one looks almost like them...only bigger!

    Awwwwww! I'll be sure to check your blog for the pictures!

    Loved the pictures of your little girls for Mother's day! They're adorable! Got a kick out of baby girl's 'body art'!

    The problem with shipping eggs today comes from when it gets put in the x ray machine :gaah:

    That pretty well zaps the eggs from what I was told. So I hope they didn't get that ... We are counting the days and hope for a good hatch. :2thumb:
