    I was thinking of selling some serama eggs, but was wondering if it is too hot ship. I see others are shipping, but the eggs seem to be kinda difficult to hatch without any added factors. Any thoughts?

    i would say it depends on where you are sending them to...i would watch the weather and go from there but thats my opinion

    It's been relatively chilly in NE PA this week. I've got some sun peaking threw clouds, but it's been mostly rain. You should be good as long as you watch the weather.

    Depends where you are and where they are. Like, it's been in the 70s here [​IMG]

    I just got eggs today and it was only 72 here so I don't think it will harm them much...but if you plan on shipping from/ to a hot state you may want to wait. OR maybe try putting in a couple ice packs for sipping? I put two ice packs in my box and it kept the eggs at a comfy 65 degrees [​IMG] That may work too. It will prob only work for the day but at least it's something.

    Thanks, for the advice it's been mid 80's to 90's here. I guess I'll just wait for cooler times and keep hatching them.
