    I'm not an expert, but from what I've read most countries will not allow eggs to be shipped in without a lot of paperwork. You would probably have to check with your local agriculture office to see what the regulations are.

    Did you do a search on the forum for others in the UK? Someone in the country may have what you are looking for.

    Good luck!

    Shipping in itself can be damaging to fragile eggs. The farther they have to travel, the less likely they will be viable.
