    Anywho i have a 7 X 7 X 6 shipping box and i want someone to pay for shipping + about $2 for shipping supplies (not for the eggs), and i will pack the living daylights out of it and see if they make it unbroken. I have shipped eggs about 7 times now, and not one has been broken. I was using a flat rate box, and this one is just a "mailing box". I'm hoping to save my customers some money, shipping is usually $11 with DC. With this one, i shipped one and it was $8.10

    Maybe someone can tell me what shipping may be? I'm sure there are alot of people that use this box and i would like to try. I figure i can do this for about 5 people, since i could fit about 8+ eggs in this box [​IMG]

    In that size box, you can fit probably 6-8 eggs, depending on the size of them. It would depend on where it's going and how much it weighs, but it shouldn't be more than $8 for the shipping.
