    Generally, you get them through the mail.

    Shipping of eggs is a science, and an art.

    Oh, it can. Scrambled eggs. Broken shells. Detached air cells. Many things can and do go wrong, but it's a risk many wish to take.

    Many times they are just fine when they arrive. Lke with anything there are risks, but you dont hear about the 100's of eggs that arrive well, and great hatch rates.
