    Well good news is my Jumbo Cortunix eggs came in the mail today!! But the bad news is 10 eggs had cracks in them. I ordered 15 eggs from ebay seller....seller sent 20 and only 10 of those are okay. 4 of the cracked ones werent badly cracked and I used a birthday candle and waxed the cracks up. I only noticed 2 of the eggs that werent badly cracked at first but after some candling realized that 2 other eggs had cracks. I have them sitting waiting to put into the bator until tomorrow. Anyone ever do the wax on the cracks and have the eggs hatch? And also I think I might ask the seller to send me 5+ eggs. Would these eggs be okay till either saturday or this coming monday if thats how long I have to wait for new eggs? Or should I put them in and just have two different hatch dates?
    Thanks all!

    That really stinks on the packaging and the cracked eggs. I would contact the seller and let them know about the broken eggs. I hope things work out for the hatch though.

    I really don't think it matters how close in location you buy them. When I buy on ebay I always check the feedback especially over the last 30 days to 6 months. I think this is really important especially with eggs. Some ebay sellers are better than others and I would either demand my money back or tell them to send you more eggs in a better package. I recently bought eggs on ebay for the first time, got them yesterday and the seller shipped them so well that if they slammed the box against a concrete wall they would not have broken.
