    If the egg/s get a small crack you can drip wax on it to seel the crack.If the eggs are wrapped well they should not freeze.Alot of egg shippers put lable on the box to have the box kept out of the cold durring shipping.
    Make sure you have them hold it at the post office so it doesnt sit on your porch and freeze.
