I have seen a lot of people ask for tips on how to ship eggs. I thought it would be a good idea if we could all post the way we do it and give lots of ideas to the people who are interested in shipping their eggs. Please post pictures if you can. I can not at the moment. The camera will not cooperate with the computer. If I ever get it to work I will edit this post with pictures of how I like to do it. I have seen many styles of eggs packing. Some I really liked and some I did not really care for. I have sort of developed my own style. This way people can read about many styles and see which one best fits their needs. Now how I pack my eggs. This is my first year shipping eggs. I have at least 25 positive feedback notes on the feedback forum for selling my eggs. I shipped a few orders before the thread was created. I also sold a few on eggbid. I am guessing I have shipped about 30 orders this year. Part of how I pack the eggs depends on how many. If it is only 6 I like to double box them. I stole this idea from bargain because I liked it so well. She really packs eggs well!! I have ordered from her 3 times and never got a broken egg. I always use the flat rate boxes. I will explain why later on. If I double box them I have to smash the little Priority box some to fit it in a medium flat rate box. I always wrap the eggs in bubble wrap. I usually use the really big bubbles. I am blessed with a Sister in law who works where she can get it for free and is nice enough to bring it to me. The large bubble wrap does in my opinion protect the eggs better than small. bargain did point out to me that if there is a dead bubble in the large bubble wrap you can have a lot more problems than with the small. I will admit that is true. Especially with preused bubble wrap like mine. You can also fit less eggs in a box when they are wrapped in the large bubble wrap. I have had people tell me that they like big better, and others tell me they like small better. I wrap the egg as tightly as possible. The less the egg can move the better chance it will have of making it. I cram them in as tightly as possible! I like to, if possible put a layer of bubble wrap inside the box and then place the eggs inside it and then fold it over the top of them to make it into a bag of its own. If there is room I always pack in as much newspaper or paper shreds or extra bubbles as possible. Pack it as tight as possible!!!! I usually end up needing someone else to help me get my boxes to close. I always like to tape the ends of the bubble wrap shut so that there is no chance of them rolling out of the bubble wrap. When I ship something small like guinea eggs I have found it helpful to wrap them in the small bubble wrap and then place 10 to 12 together. Then I tape the bubble wrapped eggs together. I then take the big bubbles and wrap that around them as tightly as possible. It makes this big package which I then place in the box and pack paper around. Basically I say on the packing do not be stingy with the bubble wrap and pack them very tightly. I might add that one time I sold some eggs for the price of shipping and little more to try an idea I had. I took about 8 eggs, I think, and then wrapped layer after layer of newspaper around them. Each egg became a huge ball. The last egg I only wrapped a couple sheets around and placed in between all the others. He said that they arrived in good condition. That is one thing you might consider doing if you are shipping small orders. Also try to keep your cost at a minimum! I always like to order from people who only charge $12.00 for shipping instead of $15.00 I know it may be hard if you do not get free bubble wrap. I am pleased to say that I now have absolutely no cost in the packaging of my eggs except for the piece of paper I print the postage on. I use free Priority boxes and free Priority stickers and tape. I always use the Flat Rate boxes if possible. Even though our scale is tested by the U.S.D.A. the post office scale never agreed with our scale. I like to print the postage online because I save $0.50 cents on each package and because they can pick it up directly from our house. This saves me money on the trip to town once or twice a week. When I use the Flat Rate boxes I always know how much to change my customers. I can ship a medium Flat Rate box for $9.85 online. I can fit a maximum of 25 eggs in it. I never mark my boxes as eggs anymore. I had shipped about 10 orders I think, when I decided to put a big sign on the boxes saying hatching eggs please be careful etc. The first box the customer got one broken egg. This was the first broken egg a customer of mine had ever received. It was of course covered by extras. The second package with eggs packed in the same manner arrived with 10 out of 25 smashed. I shipped her another 12 for free and only one arrived cracked. I put a little extra packing on those but I did not mark them. I have ever since refused to mark them as eggs. That is all I can think of to say right now. I look forward to hearing some other ideas. I hope it can help someone.
