Shipped eggs are kind of a mixed bag. I've had both excellent and disappointing results from eggs sent near and far. I liken it to eating out in restaurants. The big chains are predictable, but often times subpar as far a quality. The little Mom-and-Pop places can really surprise you. And sometimes the most expensive isn't the best.
The last batch of eggs I had was from cross-country and the hatch rate was 18 out of 22. This time I'll be lucky with 18 out of 32.
Dang... Now I'm hungry.
