    This is for 12+ eggs from my EE home flock.

    These are eggs from my docile, loving Easter Eggers who lay varying colors of eggs. One lays an almost grass green, one a lemongrass, and the other 2 lay bluer eggs of a nice dark shade. Here's a shot with my crazy ET fingers for color comparison.

    I pack in bubble wrap and will make the eggs as secure as possible. My shipped eggs have an excellent hatch rate of fat, healthy chicks. We feed the hens 19% with organic supplements.

    [​IMG]This is Ms. Owl, her eggs are the deeply colored teal.

    [​IMG] This is Dovey, as she is black and chocolate colored

    [​IMG] Kiwi lays the mint green with a tan overlay- a pale olive, often with purple speckles.

    Roo's white with blue lacing and blue tail, black and white striping on his streamers. His kids with Kiwi are consistently 50% blue laced (Andalusian-style) and 25% splash or black, and the other 25% are chipmunk.

    How long can eggs travel in mail before going bad? I wasn't sure how this works with them being away from their moms warmth?

    Quote:Hatching eggs are collected like any other egg, but they are fertile, so when you receive them you can put them under a broody hen or in an incubator [​IMG] They haven't started the incubation process prior to shipping, so they'll be just fine. It only take a couple days to get the eggs home anyways.

    Quote:Eggs don't actually begin to incubate until kept around 100 degrees for several hours. That being said, eggs that are going to be shipped should be as fresh as possible so that there isn't any real air cell to speak of within the eggs, so that the contents don't have room to shift. A larger aircell means a higher probability of a scrambled egg upon arrival. If at home, not shipped, an egg can go a maximum of 14 days, in my experience. I like to ship mine within a day or two of being laid.

    The buyer should allow eggs to rest at least 8 hours prior to incubating, to let settling occur.
