    is okay to take the risk by shipping quail eggs or should i just go pick them up? i would rather just have them be shipped, but if that is dangerous for the quail, them i will just go get them.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Depends were you live, down south wouldn't be to bad, we had some dips in temp, but eggs are in a box and insulated with ppr etc, so as long as they don't sit outside to long, they should be fine.

    For some reason I was thinking about temps, lol. As far as shipping, its always better to pick up if possible. Post office can be hard on them. I have eggs shipped all the time, and have had good success besides my screw ups. Shipping is a gamble, sometimes good, and sometimes not.
    Your call.
