It was ensured for 50 dollars. (total cost was 51, 20 for shipping, 31 for eggs.) 

the damage was extremely obvious, to the point where my post office called me and told me it was destroyed and advised me to refuse the box. sad.png 
I'm curious how this plays out. You saw my box, luckily the seller for mine is cool about replacing, for shipping cost, but I would have loved to have made a claim... my understanding is it had to be done at the PO though, and I have to work, so how is that even possible within the time frame you have to claim it (it's like 24 or 48hrs right?)... so on all of these orders that have been screwed, or late by days, I've just been hoping to have cool sellers... the USPS system is a joke. Honestly, ppl in general these days hate their jobs so much- they have no pride in their work or respect for the people around them, so why would they care about some box they have to get from point A to point B.

I haven't done it with eggs, but you can file claims online... upload pics and fill out the paperwork...

ETA: oh, and most of the damages to boxes in shipping are not caused by people at all... they're put on conveyor belts and machine sorted... machines are unforgiving if it doesn't go through quite right...

I think it's quite sad you feel that way. Maybe because it's my profession, but I find the nurses that "hate" their job went into the profession for the wrong reason (job security, money-lol thats a real joke!) and not because they want to help heal others-physically, mentally and emotionally as it should be. They don't last long.... I have learned to surround myself with positive people and that being kind is usually more important than being right. I feel horrible for people who lost their eggs or birds due to poor shipping-I too have lost some. But I don't really believe that majority of the post office starts their day saying "Hmmm I hate my job-I think I'll just smash this box of eggs!" They deal with high volume, pressure and cutbacks just like almost every other profession and sometimes people just have bad days. My post office screwed up one of my orders pretty bad. But then I think of all the times they let me come in before it opened to let me get my eggs before work so they wouldn't sit and how excited they are when I get chicks. So instead of pitching a fit, I went to Tim Hortons and bought them a box of donuts. Do you know that little random act of kindness and forgiveness made me feel so much better than being angry and because of it, they are on high alert for all my eggs (I do give them a courtesy heads up!). To:

@kajira -I'm very sorry-I know how bad you wanted those eggs! i hope things work out in your favor one way or another :hugs

Don't get me wrong, I don't think they are punching and kicking boxes of eggs, or kicking puppies and drowning kittens or anything... I see the same lack luster of care about "the job" in many situations, including my own (installing U-Verse and DIRECTV in homes and businesses)... in every job I have done through my life so far, I always put myself in the person receiving my service' place... I have always been complimented that I "take pride in my work", even when it was fast food like Burger King, Taco Bell and Subway. My personal post master is awesome, and it's a small town, so that probably helps. She stops and talks to people all the time, waves n smiles at ppl on her route. Once you get to the big sorting facilities, it's like most assimilation lines, and all bets are off... I know they handle millions of packages. It's a bummer when your packages is obviously destroyed you need to fight for that insurance...should be "if witnessed by employee prior to delivery, claim due" or somethin like that... yolk leaking out of the box is a sure sign stuffs broken... I'll check on the claim steps again, but pretty sure when reading about it last week it said "in person at the post office" to some effect (was looking up about claiming on lost packages then, and ran across it)

Glad you are in a profession that fits your desire to help! I wanted to go that route or veterinary, but I get too invested and I know I wouldnt handle it emotionally well... I'm a better listener and emotional healer heh. In fact, have had quite a few women not let me leave from installing service with out a big hug after a few hours of story telling, listening and advice giving if asked... just happens sometimes (the right combo personality to help heal someone without trying)... anyhoo, way off topic there, sorry.

But glad you got 1!! Got a pic??? pop.gif
Me too!!

Oh, btw, don't know if he messaged you but @LittleLakePhil got 100% hatch from your eggs!! 6/6 from the ones @meltel donated to him... celebrate.gif
I remember that! gig.gif
I had a gorgeous double tufted black Araucana cockerel shipped to me... our PO had bets on what he was so I opened the box and pulled him out in the PO... they loved him and got a kick outta it!


We are very lucky, and our post office is AMAZING. When I had my serama pair shipped here, they called at like 6:30 in the morning as soon as they started working. about 2 hours before they opened. They where so exited to see CHICKENS Shipped into our town. They said they where surprised when they heard crowing when they got in! and with eggs they are fantastic. they always are super careful with pretty much any box. When it says fragile, They take special consideration. I love ours!
