The USPS is the only carrier that ships live animals. I want to get some eggs from a nice lady in CA but when I asked her to write "LIVE HATCHING EGGS" on the box, she explained that her local (Lincoln CA) post office refuses to accept hatching eggs and wants her to drive 2+ hours to a larger PO that "handles" ag products. I am torn between getting my money back or having her try one of the other "mail" shipping offices, or contacting their Post Master and getting a better answer. I don't understand how a particular office can just flat refuse to accept something that the USPS ships all the time. Anybody else ever have an office refuse your eggs for shipment?
