The eggs were well packed, arrived completely intact, no chips or cracks at all. Well bubble-wrapped, and nested in the box so they didn't rattle around. Just finished hatching a couple of days ago. 7 healthy, active, alert little Delaware chickies! Out of 26 eggs, all but 3 started to develop. 20 made it to day 18. Then there were some incubator stability problems, and errors on my part. Still, I got 7, (8, but 1 may not make it, my fault, I tried to 'help') and had I kept them upright in cartons, (after removing the turner) instead of horizontal to hatch after day 18, I think I'd have gotten more. So, I knew how to hatch eggs, now I'm learning to hatch shipped eggs! I'm happy with my new babies!
