I have a broody, and ordered some eggs online on Tuesday this week. I bought a small number of eggs from one farmer, and a small number of eggs from another. I went ahead and ordered the second group because the ad guaranteed I would recieve the eggs in three days. (Am I naive to believe such things? Apparently.) I bought the eggs all on the same day. I got one shipment of eggs today, and when I went and checked on the status if the other eggs they said they hadn't been sent yet. I emailed the farmer and explained the situation, they said, "Sorry. We will ship them Monday." So what do I do now? This was my first time ordering eggs online, and I know it's an iffy prospect. Can I resonablly hold the eggs I got today until next Wednesday when the other eggs arrive? I mean, I am willing to wait, but they will be over a week old, will they still be viable? I'm so bummed.
