This is my question: How do you package fertilised eggs to ship?
Yes.
Very thoroughly with lots of Styrofoam packing peanuts around a carton with the eggs wrapped in bubble wrap or something. That is how I received my hatching eggs. If you don't do something very thorough like that and then plaster the outside of the package with FRAGILE!! labeling all over it, the recipient is sure to receive cracked eggs.

Here's one article:

Here's an older thread where several people share their experiences:

And I can't find it now, but I remember reading of one person who wrapped each egg in a disposable diaper (the kind used for human babies) and then put them in a box. It seemed clever to me-- even the smallest size diaper is larger enough to provide a lot of padding for one egg, and it's got tape to stick it on. That person had found diapers to be cheaper than bubble wrap.
