I ordered a mixed bunch of hatching eggs because I had a hen go broody and they were mailed a week ago. They still haven't arrived. I contacted the seller yesterday and she told me that the other eggs she had mailed the same day had been opened by the post office, inspected and declared HAZMAT, labeled as such and then shipped ground, even though Priority Mail had been paid for (expensive for eggs, as you may know). So we're guessing my eggs are traveling ground marked HAZMAT. If they arrive today, I figure there might be a chance for them, but I don't know - they're over a week old at this point and been through rough traveling in the cold. I'll try some perhaps. Now I'm collecting Buff Orpington eggs from my ladies to let the broody one sit on. I was just hoping to get a few different breeds in there. Love my Buffs, but I like variety, too.
