    They should be fine in an egg carton sitting on a folded towel or something in your boot.

    The problem with transported eggs is less the driving and more the postal workers throwing the boxes when they are being sorted and loaded into delivery vans.

    Are we talking about a distance that you will drive or are you wanting advice in how to package the eggs for shipping long-distance via the postal service, etc? It sounds like the former and, if so, apps is right on.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    After you move fertile eggs, before setting them, let them rest on the kitchen counter for at least 12 hours or more to get all the air bubbles to flatten out.
