The new dimensional shipping really sucks! Horizon has come up with a new box that will make it under the limit but it seems really small to me. Photo of new box next to the old boxJust out of curiosity, is anyone still interested in hatching eggs by this point in the season? I know it's late.
To whom it may apply, eggs are only allowed to be shipped if they are not likely to be harmed by anticipated temperature changes while in Postal Service custody. Use your best judgment when shipping or bidding on eggs.
Sellers beware: If you ship live birds please review the pricing. USPS has recently jacked the prices of shipping oversize boxes so incredibly high. I do not know if other things/laws have changed regarding shipping eggs or live animals. This is by weight, so keep in mind weight when shipping eggs that are not shipped in a flat rate box.
Shipping eggs hasn't changed. If you use the USPS Priority boxes (even the large) you wil be fine.
