How do you label your packaging for shipping eggs?
I use stickers I make my self with my sticker printer. But before that I use to write all over the box "Fragile Hatching Eggs Handle With Care" Etc. Then I went to ordering stickers from ebay. Make sure it's big and bold so it stands out.
I once labeled mine "Fragile Crystal Glassware".
I know FEDEX has pressurized holds in their planes. If I was overnighting the eggs that's who I would use. They also ship chilled animal semen, like for horses and dogs. So I would put "Handle with extreme care" live embryos or live semen on the box. Probably "Live Semen " because then they don't know if it is racehorse semen or eggs , except the sizes of the packages are different.
Has anyone ever researched that low hatches from shipped eggs might have to do with being shipped in unpressurized air cargo holds?
