    for the new shipping rule on eggs? anybody got any ideas? sad that eggs are now like live birds, costs more for shipping than what you buy the birds/eggs for.[​IMG]

    I don't understand it myself. Seems like they lost quite a bit of business because of it. Nobody is going to pay more for shipping than what they normally paid for shipping and the eggs combined! I'm sure the sellers will find some creative ways around this. [​IMG]

    Hey, I just found this petition regarding ebay's irrational decision! PLEASE, can y'all sign it?

    I think ebay management just needs some education on avian embryology. Some people think there are actually live embryos in hatching eggs. THERE AREN'T. They don't start to develop until they are put in an incubator on the other end. Therefore, express shipping is totally unnecessary.
