A Beginners First Experience with Shipped Eggs (Picture Heavy!) - Page 4

post #31 of 38
So this is because shipping is just so hard on eggs? I would love to see you continue this post with eggs that haven't been shipped! I really want to incubate but I'm nervous to go there...especially if the eggs I get are expensive.
