A bloke come in the yard a few weeks ago, "you got any fertile eggs for sale ?"
I told him I could save him some if he liked. We discussed breeds, price, etc. and he said great I'll have 30.
I said I would have them ready for him in a week.
6 days later he rang me, "the wife has booked a holiday, we are going tomorrow so I don't want the eggs, thought I would let you know"  !!!!
 
Oh thanks, so kind.  
I thought might as well put 24 of them in my inky (that's all it will hold)
Yesterday 24 hatched, 100%, first time ever I have had 100%.  
He said I will give you a ring when I get back to order some more, I will take great pleasure in telling him what he missed and if he want's any more "payment in advance please".
