    There are different ways to ship. I wrap each egg in bubblewrap, then put them in an egg carton carefully and don't force them in there, then wrap the carton in bubblewrap, then place it in a box cushioned with newspaper. Sometimes I use flat rate shipping boxes and sometimes the priority box, because sometimes the priority box is cheaper shipping. I also mark the box fragile eggs unless I am requested not too. So far I have had successful shipments, but I have recieved damaged eggs that were packaged the same way.

    For 6 I wrap each one in a paper towel, put them in every other hole in an egg carton, & place the egg carton in the middle of a box full of packing peanuts. So far it's worked very well.
