    I have had Bad Experience with mail delivery but I never ordered from a professional outfit. Let us know how it turns out. I wonder if the Post Office does anything different with professional outfits or if they put something on the packaging that better alerts the Post office of the delicate nature of the package.

    I posted to see if others responded because I am curious too.

    I did once and it was terrible none hatched and the eggs were filthy dirty. There was one broken egg and they did send one extra but never again for me. Sorry I don’t have a better report. I have recieved good chicks from them though.

    If you are looking for hatching eggs check the Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Kentucky local threads on BYC and ask if anyone wants local has any for buy sell or trade. I did that for NC trying to start up a hatching exchange after I got sick of failed mail order hatching eggs. I used Ebay though not any of the hatcheries. The problem was the post office, they can be rough on packages. There is also a Buy Sell Trade section in BYC and someone has likely selling hatching eggs now but they might not be in your area or have the breeds you are looking for. I know anyone living near me in NC can always trade hatching eggs with me if I have what they want. I take on any new breed just to see what they are like.
