    Thanks Mary I received the eggs today. Only ordered 12 and received 18 in perfect condition. The post office griped about the no scan note I asked you to put on, said it caused delays everywhere it was touched because they had to hand input the numbers. I was in the middle of telling them that I didn't care if it took them an extra minute each time someone had to receive it if it would protect them when the postmaster overheard the little disagreement we were having and came out to see what was going on. When he saw it was me he told the 3 workers who had gathered in to side with their co-worker that it was he that told me to have that put on the box and that it was no problem and would be no problem and that if anyone disagreed with it that they could come into his office and discuss it. Needless to say that broke it up really quickly and he apologized for his employees and told me to put it on any eggs in the future that there would be NO further problems.
    They go in the bator in the morning so once again , thanks Mary and have a blessed day. T C

    that is awesome!! thanks so much for letting me know they made it ok i always worry about that.

    rotfl i got dh yelled at when shipping ur's and another members out for putting the label on the wrong side of the box cause i did it to keep the eggs right side up. they said if it had been any other box other than priority they'd of charged a non machinable surcharge for it cause the way the box was measured. they can't charge u a surcharge on any priority box i never knew that.

    i'd of loved to see their faces i bet it was a hoot!! you are very welcome and i hope you get lots of sweeties to hatch!! if ya need anything give me yell and if ya haven't read it yet i sent ya a pm.
    thanks again,
    silkie

    Just trying to keep it from x ray or any scanners to keep any un-needed rays from getting to the eggs and harming fertility rate. Anything to try to get better hatch rates. [​IMG]

    Congradulations beekybuzzard I hope you have a great hatch....

    PS I have sold and sent hundreds of boxes of eggs all over the US.
    The small hand scan for recording the tracking numbers and insurance info will not harm the eggs at all.
    BUT if the box gets E-RAYED for any reason like at the airport they will all die be ruined.


    therealsilkiechick - Steph and I both sent you a picturetrail friend request :)
