I had the misfortune of finding out what happens when someone sends you eggs from a breed you really want around Christmas. CPL sent me Serama eggs a few years ago and did everything she could to make sure they got here intact. PO lost them and I got them 4 days late and while none were broken, every last one of them was scrambled. I haven't tried to get Seramas since then.
Sorry to hear that. I lost the eggs I bought over Ebay also (they were orloffs). However, I shipped some eggs for the first time and I heard most of them hatched, which I was so glad about. I bet my rooster, Dominator is feeling really proud of himself right now.
I bet he is proud! That is the only time I didn't have any luck with shipped eggs.
