    What experiences have you had regarding ordering eggs on-line and having them shipped? Is this a good idea and method to get hatchable eggs? Have you seen a difference in percentage of good eggs as far as local or your own, verses on-line supply? Do you have a favorite source? Should I try to locate a source as local as possible? Have you seen a difference as to how far they are shipped? All feedback, both pro and con, would be appreciated.
