Good afternoon/evening all. I had my first horribly packaged box of eggs. 2 were seriously cracked, 1 slightly cracked (i'll try to repair) and 5 intact eggs (I am not looking forward to candling these). The box was intact, but they wrapped each egg in a small piece of bubble warp, then a couple flat sheets of newspaper under and over, then several rolled sections of newspaper on top of that. They didn't mark the box fragile, or EGGS inside, or EVEN follow my instruction to write "hold at post office, call # xyz". They didn't send me a tracking number. I got the tracking number from the slip the mail person leaves in my box when they can't deliver a package. I picked the box the next day and found the cracked eggs. I sent a message to the seller (ebay), they responded IMMEDIATELY and said they would send more eggs. I was very impressed. I asked them to be a lot more generous with the bubble wrap,,.
I had paypal'd the money on Friday night, they shipped the eggs on Saturday and the hit my post office on Monday (I picked them up yesterday). If they do send more, I should get them on Friday. Let's hope they do pack them better.
it's funny, I just hatched 12 of 14 eggs that were shipped from Florida to CA. These eggs were coming a mere 250 miles or so.
