I've received eggs via Priority Mail a number of times.

All extremely well wrapped in bubble wrap and securely surrounded by crumpled newspaper

Eating eggs or Hatching eggs? I use Priority Mail to send out hatching eggs. Sent on a Monday afternoon they arrive to their destination Wed. mornings.

My parents were here back in early September when our girls just started laying so they only got to eat a couple of em ... I'm planning to send them down for them to eat ... they keep telling me that they wish they could have some more now that they've experienced fresh eggs

My advice if your shipping them to eat do NOT wash the eggs. That way the bloom coating will be on them to protect them from bacteria setting in while shipping. Make sure you also have the freshest eggs to ship out.

They will be just fine as long as the temps stay cool.
