    I know a lot of you guys buy and sell fertile eggs. I want to ship 12 (hopefully) fertile duck eggs. Whats the best way to safely package them? So far i have a carton and bubble wrap.

    well all the eggs i have received are packed as a layer. from bottom of box up it went like this.........newspaper, bubblewrap, eggs individually bubble wrapped(some then put in carton some not), then another layer of bubble wrap, and finished with newspaper. i have gotten about forty eggs sent to me this way(not all at once) and none have been broken. hope that helps.

    Bubble wrap each egg and carefully tape them, place all the eggs on a newspaper and wrap them all together. Then place your egg package in a newspaper lined box and fill it with more newspaper. Seal the box and send it.
