    After a search, I did not fine this particular poll which I believe will be useful.

    For those sending or receiving eggs or chicks, which shipper has performed the best for you? Assume that all eggs or chicks were in prime condition when they were placed with the shipper. So who performed the best, on time, no damage, no injuries, and not lost in never-never land. The one you would recommend.

    It appears that UPS and FedEx each ship to over and within 220 countries. And then there would be local postal and local carriers for other countries. This poll would include our friends around the world.

    I know a few people who work for UPS and FexEx, I'm confident those packages are all handled very very roughly, kicked thrown etc, and I would never ever ship eggs through those 2 carriers.

    I'm not saying USPS is any better, but it's certainly worked for me so far.
