Maybe its time for something to be written about the correct packing of shipping eggs. when I buy shipping eggs, I try like crazy to convince people to ship pointy end down, well seperated, with 2-3" cushion of packing material around the sides. They are not always happy with my suggestions. One of them said "well hens dont store their eggs pointy end down" and I replied that they don't ship eggs, either. Humans ship eggs.
If I start a shipping eggs well thread, will you come post this? I think I will start it, and make it very open to the receivers of eggs, hoping the shippers may come and rethink thiings a bit. Your experiences with receiving eggs definitely influence how you perceive a good way to package to be.

Packing peanuts or shredded paper in outer left and right long pockets.
Place peanuts or paper into each hole
Wrap egg in bubble wrap
Set into hole pointy end down
Pack shredded paper or peanuts around egg
This allows for 9 eggs to go in 1 large flat rate box safely
