    Not holding out hope though, these were about 8 days old when I got them and the box was a bit battered by shipping. I swear, next time I get quail eggs I'm driving down and picking them up myself. I think the post office has a personal vendetta against all things quail.

    Best of luck to you! My Seramas weren't exactly treated with the care they should have been either so unfortunately for all of us, you're not alone.

    I just locked down my quail this AM.
    I agree - the post office hates eggs - Mine were beautifully packed and only 11 out of twenty survived transit. I've heard good things about quail survivability though, so I'm pretty excited!
    Good luck with your hatch!
