(your hatch results may vary but we know there's fertility in that pen!) Please remember that both the welsummers and marans fade over time. Some of the Welsummers may be lighter or darker than the others, It just depends upon where the hen is with her egg cycle. With welsummers especially, in the South, where they have been heavily laying for us since January, colors are lighter than when they began...All of our hens were born of dark eggs and that's critical to you as you look at egg colors. We only ship within the continental US. We ship eggs in the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as many factors such as the incubators temperature and humidity, etc are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible. The shipping price above reflects careful selecting, packing, priority mail and confirmation delivery. Shipping at the $16.70 rate in the 48 US states (mainland). If you live in Hawaii or Alaska, please contact us to get your shipping rate as we have found the costs are longer and the shipment time longer. Payment for this listing is paypal, no e checks as they delay the shipping.
