    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..
