    I live in Missouri and the temps are below freezing at night and not a lot warmer in the day. How cold is too cold to ship eggs? I want to order some EE eggs really really really bad. Did I say really?

    It's too cold to ship, when it's really really really cold.. Did I say really!!! [​IMG] It's not to good of an idea. But it can be done.. Depends on how they are packed and if the seller can include a heat pack to help keep them from freezing.. You may get lucky and find someone fairly local too!

    Sometimes it works out in the cold and sometimes it doesn't work out. It is a pretty big risk in that kind of weather, but......
