    These were eggs from a swap chain. She was only required to send me 6 but instead she sent me:

    LF Polish-8
    Ameraucana-3
    Cuckoo Marans-4

    15 EGGS! and she helped me out with another matter!

    I think I love her!

    thanks crunchie

    Must be crazy, you are too nice! Now that those eggs made it to you in good shape, I'm crossing my fingers that you have a great hatch!!

    I think I got the idea to do the individual eggs that way from Dipsy Doodle Doo a couple of years ago. She had (maybe still has?) great photos of her packaging process on her BYC page, I think. I think the rest of the packaging just evolved the more I shipped. I really like to see pictures of other people's packaging--it's helpful, gives me ideas to make my own packaging better. This method has worked really well for me. Only one person has ever told me they've had a broken egg. [​IMG]
