    This may be a silly question, but when eggs are shipped around the country by the USPS Priority Mail, I would assume that many are on airplanes for part of their journey's. If so, I would suspect that packages are not put in depressurized cabin space. Wouldn't this have an effect on the eggs?

    Whatever happens, it doesn't affect the eggs, because there are a LOT of people who receive them and get excellent hatches. [​IMG]

    Nearly all of my birds came/hatched out from shipped eggs.

    I'm counting on them being OK as I have eggs from FL, KS, NoCA, SoCA and WA coming next week!
