    Do you think they could ship to Illinois safely or is it too cold?? I would love to have them but I am afraid they would freeze coming this way.

    I certainly don't think they will freeze. Only if they were left on your doorstep in below freezing weather for several hours. For myself, I refrigerate all my hatching eggs until I am ready to put them in the incubator. Fridges are around 45 degrees. I've left them there as long as 10 days as still had 100% hatching from them. I would much rather ship eggs in the winter than in the heat of summer. My belief is that the cold helps to keep them fresh. I don't refrigerate hatching eggs that I ship because most folks don't want me to. You can always call your PO and let them know to hold the package for you to pick-up. That's what I do. This keeps them from riding around in a truck. Although it's controversial, I do put "hatching eggs" stickers on the outside of the box. I also put a sticker that says, "Thank you for handling these with care!!" and "Fragile" stickers as well. Let me know what you decide...thanks!
