    Can anyone post pics of how you would ship eggs or what kind of packing the breeder used to ship the eggs? I'm considering selling some fertile hatching eggs in the spring and need some ideas of how to ship them.

    I would highly recommend you check in with James at Skyline Poultry, his egg packing is immaculate and gives great hatch rates on the Basque eggs he sells.

    I did a quick search and found that some people wrap each egg individually in bubble wrap. Then they use flat rate boxes from the post office, great idea! I also have a paper shredder at work that puts out some really fine shreads of paper that I think would be great for packing eggs. We go through tons of paper every day in the shredder so it would be free packing. I was also looking on ebay and found some interesting labels. This would grab some attention at the post office!
