    I was wondering what all kinds of labels everyone puts on there boxes of eggs. What size box do you use for half a dozen eggs? Full dozen?
    Thanks--PWF

    When I received my eggs in the mail the seller had written "Eggs" on every side of the box, and someone from one of the postal centers had taped a slip of paper saying "LIVE ANIMALS" with some cute duck and fish drawings to the top. I didn't think that sort of thing really helped, but I received all of the eggs in perfect condition, even though the packaging wasn't nearly as protective as I've seen (e.g. MissPrissy's packaging). The box itself was large enough to place one of those 2-dozen foam egg cartons in the center diagonally with newspaper padded all around.

    I bought a red stamp that says "FRAGILE", and "Handle With Care". I stamp all over the box.

    My PO lady stamps my lables on which is Fragile and handle with care.

    I use a large flate rate box for more then 6 eggs. I use a Prority box meduim sized for 6 and under.
