I have read all the information on how to store/prepare eggs for shipment. Don't jostle. Keep 50-65 degrees, incubate at 10, no more than 14 days. However, once that box is packed at the post office, all bets are off. They could sit on the tarmac at ice station zebra, be taken 4 wheeling, or who knows whatever. For this reason, it would appear that eggs from a closer supplier would have a better hatch rate/success. I have seen some chickens from back East and would like some of their stock. Does anyone have knowledge, anecdotal or otherwise that would suggest where I should get my fertilized eggs?
