    1. How much longer will you ship eggs safely?

    2. What kinda boxes do you ship a dozen, 2 dozen and 3 in?

    3. And do you ship in egg cartons or just wrapped in bubble wrap and do you mark boxes with hatching eggs inside?

    I read on here where ppl said they never use flat rate boxes. I just figured it would be cheaper to use a flat rate once you ship over 8 eggs. I know I package safely bc I just received an email from a lady and said she had 22 out of 24 hatch. So I think that's a dang good average for shipped eggs. But I want my shipping cost to be as cheap for the buyer as possible but still safe on the eggs.

    If this is in the wrong place please move it. I didn't know where to post it.
