    I have eggs that I want to ship but for the next several days the temps will be in the 90 range. What kind of luck have some of you had shipping or receiving eggs in hot weather?

    I haven't had bad luck-of course where I ship it hasn't been that warm-it will be in the next few weeks so I will not be selling and eggs-I will keep them for me all summer unless a local wants them...I just don't want to take chances-to much stress on the buyer and me
     
  3. Hi! I've had good luck.
    I just make sure I collect eggs frequently through the day so they don't stay hot.
    Wrap them in lots of bubblewrap to help protect against extreme temps.
    Mark the box FRAGILE / PERISHABLE / DO NOT EXPOSE TO HEAT OR COLD, etc.

    Good luck!
