    We sort of invented this to combat the hot weather shipping. We had eggs that didn't travel well regardless our endless effort for shipping to other parts of the country. Cold pack goes out in a day or two but this thing seems work pretty well.

    We have ship eggs out of the country (7 days) and eggs survived and hatched.

    Price is per box(1), you can order as many as 6 for the same shipping price. It's perfect for bantam to medium size egg, foam is 7x7x6, two (for 12 eggs) will stack nicely in small priority 7x7x6 box. We can also add an additional hole so you can sent extra, just let us know.

    Thank you so much for looking. If no one bid on it, this will give you an idea, either way, we are happy to share.

    Price is per box (What does this mean)? Is it for just one of the foam pieces?

    Also, do you have quail sizes available?

    Hi Dreamspirit,
    One piece foam container with 6 egg holes that hold 6 bantam to med size eggs, they are 7x7x3, two foam will fit perfectly into 7x7x6 priority box for 12 eggs. This will be so much lighter and secure, the foam keep heat/cold out, act as insulater and support, it will save you postage too. I use to send priority med size flate rate for 12 eggs, with this little puppy, I save $6.00 in postage. you just pop the egg in and plug both end, that's it. you're done.
    Whiteconfections,
    Not for quail eggs yet, but we are looking for a way to do that. Thanks for asking.

    Kind of firm actually, a little squishy maybe.

    How did you cut the holes? Like, are they rough cut, or smooth?

    If smooth, I'll definately bid!
