    The great egg shipping experiment thread shows that egg cartons are not a good way to ship eggs.

    The way Bama ships them is the best way. Memory foam is good but you need to use the correct type. One type does not stop shocks.

    Well ron...[​IMG] lol...it's always been the best way I've gotten them. When they are packed separate is when I get broken ones..not always, but only when I have the egg cartons is when I have ..good eggs. :)
    I have to pull a photo now..I've gotten two boxes like this, this one, was a box within a box! And, I like that too. :) Just didn't work out this time!

    Ok, I have a small predicament.....I cannot post in the BST section because I have posted enough on this forum or site and I am looking to buy some hatching eggs; preferably rhodebar, cream legbar and some other pretty chickens, large or medium size egg, any and all colors would be wonderful to hatch for my first time during this hatch along. I would like a total of no more than 12 eggs. If anyone could help me, pleaseeeeeee, I would really appreciate it! I am on a slight budget so if I can only buy a few less than 12 if I need to, to afford buying the eggs and shipping. Also if anyone knows of any Golden 300 duck eggs and / or Ancona duck eggs for sale, I would be like totally psyched!!! Pleaseeeeee someone help me make my dreams a reality here :) :) :)

    I am getting Ancona eggs from Quackleberry Farm. You should look them up on Facebook. After talking to the owner for awhile I decided to buys some eggs. He's really nice and helpful and answered all my questions very patently. I excited to add a couple more Anconas to my little flock! My 2 are great!

    Those were not packed correctly--The eggs should be wrapped up like a burrito and double boxed.

    Go to the great shipping experiment thread for better instructions.--I will post some later too.

    Hi,
    I don't have any ancona eggs available at this time but have plenty for sale in the spring! I've been breeding anconas for years now and breed for the suggested standard. I have black, blue, lavender, lilac, chocolate and silver in my flock. And also separate my blacks a few times a year for strictly black offspring.
    I get cream, gray, and green eggs from them.

    Feel free to message me if you want the link to my website and farm page!

    This was double boxed! :/

    We were just guessing that a couple of .. not so nice people, played football and catch with the box.

    Ok, I didn't show all of the photos. They were wrapped up like a burrito.
    Will show you the sequence of photos, but not the outside box itself, which wasn't in bad shape at all, it has my name on it, but took a photo of the box and insides like I usually do when I've bought through the mail.

    [​IMG]

    Pulled most of the paper that was stuffed down the sides to get a good photo of the box inside. Not bent at all.

    Is the burrito part you're talking about? I had pulled a top part of by now.
    [​IMG]

    Then the other two that I posted. I have received two boxes just like this. Box in a box, and wrapped up together. That's ok, I just let them know now how I prefer my eggs wrapped.

    HOPE YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE HAD A GREAT THANKSGIVING DAY. I WAS GOOD, I DIDN'T EAT TOO MUCH, HAVE TO SAVE SOME ROOM FOR PIE...LATER. ;)
