Buying shipped eggs is a crap shoot. If the seller packages them well, sends them in a timely manner and is responsible on their end in every way, they are done. They are not responsible for the PO, the way they are handled after they leave their house. Also there is no way possible for a seller to know if the eggs are fertile. If they have an active rooster, they can ASSUME they are fertile, but there is not way for them to know for sure that THOSE EGGS have been fertilizer. Buyers of shipped eggs, please give the sellers a break. They don't have crystal balls or ESP or anything like that. Off my soap box now.
