    Hi everyone, I am getting ready to order some eggs from Florida and they will be in transit for 3 days (if USPS has their crap together). There will only be 8 eggs and I want to know if anyone here has ordered eggs like this, via mail, and what your hatch rate was.

    For shipped hatching eggs, you usually consider yourself lucky if you get 50% to hatch, because they go through so much to get to you.
