    I knew about not washing but is it better to not refrigerate too?

    I have a co worker that leaves them out after they have been lightly washed--for up to three weeks. They sit on a file cabinet and she scrambles them in the microwave.

    I have not shipped eggs so don't have an answer for you on what width to buy. I have a 12 in wide roll that I use to ship kid's hair accessories that I sell on eBay. [​IMG] I just took a section (mine is perforated every 12 in so it is a 12 x 12 in piece), folded it in half and wrapped a Marans egg with it. It ended up having almost 2 in. at each end and wrapped around the egg almost 2 times so 4 layers of bubble wrap.

    Ali, my husband is an insurance agent. [​IMG] What do you do in the industry? I feel like we are mommies expecting babies at the same time.

    Woo Hoo! Just moved the girls out of the house and into the coop! I couldn't take it anymore, so out they go. Yes, I maybe um need to finish some details on the coop, but at least peace has been restored in the house.
    Now I guess I get to stay up all night worrying about how they do their first night outside. Eek. Is it wrong to sleep outside next to the coop? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I am a terrible mommy, trying to cook my babies!

    I work for a broker, sell and work on business insurance, such as Liability and Workers' Compensation. I also do all the rest too, health, life, home, auto, etc. I used to work in SF for the big guys, but I like it in Roseville with the littler guys better. Less stress! [​IMG]

    But clearly I missed some stress in my life because I decided to try my hand at hatching chickens! Will I ever learn?

    It looks like a great weekend for sleeping outside!

    They will be fine! Highs near 90 with a low of about 60. Piece of Cake!
