    I have another box of eggs from Quail Lady at the post Office. I'm going to set me Wed. for a New Years Hatch. These I think are mostly Texas A&M's

    What are the temperatures that your eggs are being shipped at? When you say, "Texas A&Ms"...you're talking about the white ones right?

    I won't be able to set on Wednesday...but am expecting a hatch this weekend and will set then...it will be just a few days behind you.

    How many did you get? It's always good opening eggs and they're all intact...

    I've gotten chicken eggs in the mail before...or scrambled eggs and it wasn't a pleasant sight. Always had good luck with the quail eggs through the mail though.
