I got some eggs in the mail. The were wrapped well. One was broken. I just took 4 after candling that had no growth, and opened them and the yolks were broken. The other 3 are not hopeful iffy. I had put a silkie egg in there, and after 6 days of broody setting, it sat out overnight not sat on. That has some hope.
The USPS must have done a real number on those eggs to actually break one egg and break yolks as well.

I am sorry the eggs did not make it. that makes me mad that they treated those eggs that rough.


I sold a doz duck eggs to a person on here. I sent 24 1 got broke in the shipment. 1 hatched
sad 1 baby duck no body to keep him company.

The post office has gone postal on our eggs.
As soon as you want I will send you more eggs.
