    Hey Everyone!

    1st of all, I wasn't sure where to post this, so sorry. [​IMG] My question is how cold is too cold for shipping eggs (or buying eggs that have to be shipped to you)? Our nighttime temps are still in the 30's (35, 37, etc.), but above freezing. Would you guys say that's still too cold or ok?

    You are good to go. Those temps will not have any measurable effect.

    Great, thanks! [​IMG] Next I'm going to see if I can incubate some eggs without frying them and having any power outages! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I would say that it is not too cold at all. Anything above freezing is good this time of year.
