    Ok...I notice that there is a ton of people selling EMU eggs right now, but my problem is that it is below freezing this time of year here in people ship EMU eggs to colder climates throughout the winter? I assume since most people store fertile eggs in the fridge, that shipping to colder climates isn't a big problem either.

    How do you guys ship your Emu eggs to colder areas of the U.S. and are you successful?

    Thanks for any help

    I havent shipped any emu eggs yet, but I have shipped every other kind of egg in this cold weather and havent had any issues yet. I have even had eggs shipped to me in this cold. I think the cold is better on the eggs then the heat of summer is. Just my thoughts.

    I just received 3 eggs yesterday. I am in western NY. They were cold when they arrived but not froze. They were also packed with a hand warmer.
