    Carefully and after payment clears [​IMG] GOLDEN RULE

    ok, i have 2 ways~
    1.foam sheet cut out holes for eggs , place eggs in middle piece of thick foam, place foam on top and bottom, slide in box

    2, bubble wrap each egg, top open for freah air, place in cartoon , pack in box with shipping peanuts

    whick ever you do make sure you have a handling fee. Some people will pay for better wrapped eggs

    Live birds require more paperwork, the boxes are special and 10-15 a piece. I know you even have to fill out paper work also , check PO for info.​

    She was talking about the Shipping boxes for the birds, not actual shipping cost.
