    Hi everyone! I'm just getting started with selling chicks and hatching eggs and was wondering how you pack your eggs for shipping. What kind/size box do you use, what do you use for packing material, and do you write special instructions on the box? Where do you get your boxes and packing materials? I need some serious help, because I was wanting to start shipping eggs as early as next month, so I need to get everything figured out before then. And if you have any pictures of how you ship your eggs, I would love to see them! Thanks!

    I wrap my eggs in tissues before placing and shipping my eggs in polystyrene egg boxes like this:

    I get mine from eBay, and they sell them in batches of 20 at about $20 (so $1 per box). They come in different sizes, aswell as boxes for geese and quail.

    No wonder I couldn't find them. They are UK origin and don't ship to the states. I'd tried that search and many others, could not be found for sale here.
