    Could someone tell me when the best time to have eggs shipped is? Like weather-wise? We're still pretty cold here, but I got a bug, and want some eggs!! [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    It's been pretty cold here in PA and we have been getting eggs shipped all winter. It is all in how the seller packs them. We have had great pack jobs and no frozen or broken eggs yet.

    I am in MN and have had a few egg shipments this winter, sometime if you ask a seller they will include a heat pack. I have received one package with a heat pack and the rest with out. I have had a pretty good hatch considering they are shipped eggs.
