Eggs are collected daily and will be freshly laid the day we ship your order. Eggs will be packaged properly and safely. We put "Live Fertile Hatching Eggs", on all sides of shipping box except top and bottom. Free Priority mail shipping to lower 48 states only!! My flock that you will receive eggs from are: Black Pied White Pied Blue Pied Chocolate Barred White Blue All pictures shown are of my very own flock of Muscovy Ducks! We cannot guarantee your hatch rate because there are too many factors that are out of our control once the eggs are in USPS's hands. There are risks such as, USPS Workers tossing the boxes, not properly incubating the eggs, low or high humidity, x-rayes, and many other things. We can't control or know how USPS wil handle the eggs once in shipping. We try our best to lower the risks as much as possible! The shipping stickers you see in the pictures are the ones we use! They are bright colors to grab USPS workers Attention to handle eggs carefully! Please feel free to contact us about any questions or concerns you may have!
