Hello! I was wondering if it is getting too hot to order shipped eggs and to have a good hatch from them? The temps here were in the upper 80's today.

Does anyone have eggs shipped in the warmer weather? If they were in the box in transit and at anytime they reached their incubation temp, they would probably start to develop. Do the sellers put some type of cold pack in with them or anything? I am just wondering because I have never had any eggs shipped during the warmer weather. Thanks!

I was actually wondering the same thing because the eggs I want I cannot get locally. Today it was 90 and the eggs that I collect for hatching out of my coop I now store in the basement until I place them. But as far as shipping eggs go, I think the shipping part would be okay. The facilities are air conditioned. The trucks cargo areas I am sure are not, but don't think they are going to be in there for very long. I would probably make sure that you were home when they were due to arrive so they would not be left on your porch on a hot day. I could be wrong. I have only ever had shipped eggs in early spring.
