    I bet they taste good too. I remember my first egg it was the best egg i ever tasted. I videoed the cooking and eatng of it for my youtube channel.
    Here is the video if you want to see it.

    By the way, is that shredded paper? That is a good idea.

    Quote:Yes, they were shipped from TN, made it thru UPS (and we know how they can be!)

    A box inside a box with lots of shredder material, when i finally got some of it cleared away, I found this!

    Each one wrapped in bubble wrap! Not one was even close to having a crack, great job from Buddy http://www.backwoodspoultryfarm.com/Backwoods_Poultry_Farm.html

    My welsummers eggs shipped from TN also. They were wrapped in paper towel then in egg cartons then in bubble wrap and then in a box full of shredded paper like yours. No breakage at all. On day 7 now hopefully I will have chicks in 2 weeks!
