    I am trying to coordinate the arrival of eggs from two different sources this Spring. Both will be shipped USPS Priority Mail.
    One batch coming from California
    One batch coming from NY
    ... I am in Maine ...
    I need to hatch all eggs at the same time.

    I am looking for feedback on other peoples experiences on how long it took for their eggs to arrive via USPS Priority to get an idea on when to order from both of these locals so as to have them arrive as close to the same time as possible. I know that the USPS is far from a science, and that anything could happen, but any feedback on how long your eggs took to arrive via this shipping method from Point A to Point B.

    Any inout appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Iam no pro on this, and hoping others will chime in soon for you. But my understanding is you have them for up to 14 days before you incubate them, now that makes me nervous, but I would think even if they arrive a few days apart you will be fine

    Now remember this, it's from my research not my experience so hoping others hop on and help u with your questions.

    Also I ordered eggs from Texas, and they arrived in less then 3 days

    I have eggs coming from another state clear across the other side of the us and the lady told me once she ships them they should be here in two days, we shall see
