    I've given some friends a dozen here and there that were about two weeks old , and they pretty much all hatched out. So long as they are shipping fresh eggs, you should be alright. [​IMG]

    Spend the extra for priority mail. Hatchability decreases over time so I wouldn't chance it.

    This is True, if I was buying I would want them as soon as I could get them. [​IMG]
