    I had a brilliant idea...or maybe not so much !!! Has anyone tried shipping a small hard cooler to the person you are buying eggs from and having them ship it back with the eggs in it??? When I buy shipped eggs they are wrapped with extreme care, padded, and clearly marked fragile. The last package I received was completely smashed....so naturally so were 5 out of 10 of the eggs. I cooler would prevent that...and would better regulate the temperatures. Good idea...or no??

    I would think that would be a great idea, just possibly costly so I would only do it with very valuable eggs.
