    I just received my first ever shipment of eggs. I was worried because I assume ALL sellers claim to pack their eggs well. I have seen and read some horror stories and seen pics of bad packing and post office damage. I figured I would shine some light and hope for future eggs buyers who get a good seller. Granted, They could still be scrambled and I have to test for fertility in a few days but I think they were packed better then I had imagines. My box was marked "Fragile" on every side, Had a paper taped to the box stating that live animals were inside and then "Hatching eggs" were written on all sides per my request. Today I feel like I have been blessed by the shipping Gods! Wish me luck for fertility and no scrambled eggs!

    FYI- It took me 25 mins wo open all 12 eggs and I am not complaining!

    Good luck!! I have my first ever shipped eggs (my first ever hatching eggs as well) in my incubator and was blessed as well!! [​IMG] I won an auction for 12 eggs, they shipped 14. Out of those 13 developed and now 3 are rocking in the bator. [​IMG] When I candled them the last time I think a couple of them were early quitters, but since I'm new to hatching I left them in just in case!!

    Glad to hear you got your eggs all in one piece! What kind of eggs are these? and I presume these will be going into your new Brinsea?
