    Here's a newbie question.... Do the eggs get shipped to my house or do I pick them up? Is it better to pick them up from the post office? Do I need to tell the post office of my incoming package? First time doing this haha
    Thanks

    The P.O has always sent be a card stating that my eggs have arrived. I wouldn't want them riding around in a hot delivery truck all day. You might want to contact your local post office and give them your phone number and ask them to notifiy you when they arrive. My P.O. always calls me for baby chicks but they never have for eggs, but I never have ask them too either. Another thing when your eggs arrive let them set at room temp for about 12 hours before putting them in the bator. GOOD LUCK

    I have gotten better results by letting then sit for 24 hours before starting. Good Luck!
