    I love it! I just sent of a bunch of eggs, and i just love wrapping all of them and packing them, and sending them on their way.... I find it FUN! [​IMG]

    I've never shipped eggs :eek:
    I always wondered just how you're supposed to wrap/pack them for safe shipping. And what kind of box to ship them in.

    Never shipped eggs, but love to buy eggs, and get them, and unwrap to see what I get. Hopefully I will get to ship eggs soon, if the silkies will ever start laying.

    I love the feeling when you've been informed everything arrived safe. Before that there's too much anxiety to feel good . . . my thoughts run along the lines of, "Oh I'll bet I'm doing this wrong all my eggs are going to arrive broken and gooey and the person will hate me forever because I did such a terrible job packing and dear god did my dog just walk off with one of the eggs in his mouth BAD DOG ROOK!"

    But yeah, it's great when it's all over and you know your fears were groundless. [​IMG]

    Oh I'd love to have some eggs from the second pen. Love those big ole chickens [​IMG]
    I could try shipping some eggs in a trade, but they'd more than likely be sex-link x RIR mixes. Those boogers get big! And pretty too.
