    Just got my quail eggs after a pretty long wait but sooooo, soooo impressed with the shipping. They came deep inside an oversized box firmly filled with wood shavings. At 98 degrees at noon today my hand reached into the cool depths of the shavings and pulled out twice the number of eggs that I ordered with not one broken. Was speechless until just now......in a good way for a change:D WOW
    Thanks Whitehouse it was worth waiting for.

    Talk about ways of packing that render one speechless: the last shipment of coturnix eggs I ordered were packed in a very small container. They were sandwiched between to layers of r-30 insulation. The eggs were flawless and 36/40 hatched. The 4 that didn't hatch, I cracked because I was struggling with setting in the brinsea eco 20 I ordered for the first time. Anyways, love to receive well packed eggs!
