12 eggs (or 10+ extras) whatever sounds better to you. The girls are laying their little butts off right now and we can’t hatch all of them for ourselves. All eggs come in egg padding and priority 1-3 day (depending on your location) I ship eggs mon-thurs only to ensure your eggs don’t take a layover at the post office for the weekend. $53 includes shipping, tracking and $50 insurance. If you think your package has been damaged, please be sure to take video/pictures before and during opening, this makes it easier to file your claim with usps if needed (but fx, we haven’t had a problem with that yet!) All eggs are packed with care to protect them the best I can. I can not guarantee hatchability as shipping eggs can cause air cell damage even with proper packaging.
