    I got eggs (silkie) on Wednesday and put them in the bator and on day 4 they all (ordered 6 and got 8) have veins! I am so looking forward to this hatch! A few have the saddle air cell from the PO being so rough but they look awesome!
    Thanks again!

    Tell me about it! I got eggs from her on Friday! They were the best packaged eggs I have ever seen! I told her if everyone packaged the way she did there would never be another broken egg!! It is still too early for me to candle yet! I am so looking forward to candling. [​IMG]

    I got eggs from her too and they are great! I also have some chicks that hatched from her eggs. They look great and we really like them.

    how do you pack them? I am thinking of buying some eggs and feel sorta like sending the packing material with instructions to the seller... any suggestions?

    I individually wrap each egg in 5/16" bubble wrap from a 12 x 12 sheet of it cut in half, then pack them big-end-up in a box and use bubble wrap to fill in any gaps to make sure they don't move around too much. This method requires quite a bit of bubble wrap, but it is well worth it IMO because I have yet to have an egg break or crack on me during shipment.

    I did have one egg I shipped arrive with a crack in it, but because of the way it was cracked (right around the center of the egg like a ring) I think I cracked it during packaging by putting too much pressure on the egg while I was rolling it up in bubble wrap. Live and learn! [​IMG]

    Chellester, You have so so many great comments about your eggs. Now I'm curious. Are you selling them on Ebay? If so what is your user ID so I can look you up to see what you are selling. Or, do you sell them here on BYC? By the way,,,what kind of eggs do you sell?

    Quote:I have sold them on eBay before under the username bianchisbarn, but I have been hearing so many horror stories about egg sellers on eBay lately that I didn't want people to think I was one of the bad sellers, so I started selling eggs here instead.

    Right now I sell Silkie eggs in blue/splash/cuckoo/white and Mille Fleur D'Uccle eggs. Eventually I would like to expand that to include some cochin bantams and a few other breeds.
