Unboxing the eggs. The bag of freshwater on the left adds weight bur acts as a thermal mass helping to keep the temps constant over the two day trip. A heat pack also helped. The temp if the water the eggs were in was an ideal 77.7 F upon arrival.

After acclimation, the eggs were placed in the Cobalt Egg Tumbeler. If they are fertile and all goes well, they should hatch in 3 weeks or so.
Awesome! We have our fingers crossed as well. If any of the eggs we sent you are translucent enough to candle, we'll be extremely interested if you see any development. We had never heard of this egg tumbler device. We fabricated a gizmo to tumble them, but a professional solution interests us greatly!!! We should compare notes as best we can as this adventure unfolds. Cheers!
