Anyone ever switch up shipping labels on eggs? What a week!

    Or am I the only dummy? I have sent so many eggs and I have never done this, but it has been a crazy week to say the least. I sent out two packages on Saturday and after a long day at work on Friday, I was up late packing the eggs up. I work on saturday. Anyway, weighed the boxes and printed the postage correctly, but then taped the wrong label on the wrong boxes. Did not have a clue until they were received and one lady emailed me asking me what the letters on the eggs meant. Boy am I embarrassed. And now I have to replace the eggs and my seramas are broody! Dang what a week. And I have another shipment that is lost, so will have to try to do something there too. I wonder sometimes if I should just quit while I am behind, lol. Just wondering if anyone else has weeks like this.

    I will try to keep that in mind, oh wait, what mind, I have lost it! Thank goodness both parties were very understanding but neither one needs the eggs they received. So I will have to replace both sets. And I have to do something about the set the post office can't find. Not sure what everyone else does in these situations, but what a mess. Any suggestions can be pm'd to me to avoid any heated discussion. Thanks so much for your support! I have always done well with shipping and never had any problems until this month. And now I have had a second set of eggs lost and two switched! I am on a roll.lol

    ohhh Marie, I just saw this post. I am one of your errr 'victims' , remember, I said it was a blonde moment NOT a senior moment.

    This has to be the single nicest person to have an oops with. 10 Seramas from 13 eggs hatched today, cutest little boogers ever.... now what do I do, my little guy will not give them up for love, money or threats . Now Salmon Favorelles and Silkies are under a broody so another week and more chicks. I have faith in you Marie and you have some nice chickens.


    ps, I call these babies "Accidental Serama's" [​IMG]

    Oh, you are so sweet! I have never heard of such great results on shipped seramas. Guess it was just meant to be. Do keep me posted on the silkies and faves.

    Thanks again for the nice comments. You are so sweet.
