    I'm going to be taking a friend some eggs, but will be in a hotel Friday night. They will probably not be to her fridge until Saturday dinner time. I think they would be fine in a cooler with ice until she gets home with them, but figured I would ask in case someone knows or has a better idea. Can't leave them in my car as they will freeze. Thanks.[​IMG]

    Are they for eating or for incubation?

    They will be fine. We took eggs to friends in NY a few months ago. Put 'em in a cooler and they were great.
