    Please give all kudos to deerman for teaching me how to pack/ship eggs. This is his method, which he so kindly shared. All gratitude should go to him. I just followed instructions!

    C&RMan, please consult others about these eggs. I know that eggs can only "sit" for so many days before their hatching viability declines. Not sure how many days that would be, but if your incubator doesn't arrive in time and these eggs have sat for too long, I will gladly send more to replace them. I think the eggs dated the end of May might be in jeopardy for age.

    For those of you who want to use deerman's packing method, the eggs are in styrofoam cups, taped closed. You will need a #4 and a #7 USPS shipping box (free from post office). Five eggs per small box, fill with peanuts or other styrofoam packing; insert into larger box and do the same. Thank you deerman.
