    How far have you had eggs shipped and had an acceptable hatch rate ? Each persons idea of acceptable is their own.

    I was the shipper, not the shippee, but I sent eggs from Oregon to Maine. I think I sent 14 and she said 9 hatched.

    That's awesome, 50 percent is good no matter the distance, that far with that rate is fantastic
