    Just wondering if we have a choice as far as eggs go - the PO isn't all that reliable when it comes to documenting along the way.

    Yes, UPS does, but the shipping is much higher than the USPS. We received quail eggs through UPS once. They were pretty shook up, but we had a good hatch anyways. Good luck.

    The only eggs I ever got from UPS I had a terrible hatch.

    He could have a truck like the ice cream man - palying the chicken dance song - getting chicky wit it -
