    [​IMG] How long do shipped eggs from MPC usually take to arrive? I ordered them almost 2 weeks ago and the waiting is killing me!

    Did you get a confirmation # and a shipping date?

    I was on that site the other day and read something about eggs being shipped 'within 30 days'. You could always call them and see when your order will be shipped.

    This is straight from MPC's website under important hatching egg information. "After ordering, your package may not arrive for one week to three months, depending on availability, because these eggs and breeds are rare and in high demand!"

    Oh no! I ordered really common chicken types. BA, BR, and EE. hopefully theyll come soon... they didnt email me a message saying they've shipped, but they didnt do that for the chick feeders/waterers i ordered either, so it could come any time.[​IMG]
    I finally got my 'bator to stabilize at 99.5 degrees, I just need the eggs![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Grace I am in Chickaloon, and all the eggs I have ordered arrive by Priority in 3-5 days. You may want to check with your source to see if they have been mailed and when.

    PS.. They might have waited til after the Christmas rush, for a variety of reasons. Its pretty rough on packages at that time.

    that's a good point. They may have waited to ship until tomorrow, because theres no mail today.... in which case they could be here by the day I go back to school.... Oh, bittersweet.

    I know how you feel. Its exciting and stressful at the same time, and the waiting is hard. But you haven't lived [​IMG] til you are actually incubating!

    Yeah, I am waiting for a shippment of bulbs sent priority and they haven't arrived yet. Waiting for packages at this time of year is hard on those of us who hate to wait. LOL

    Nine days till lockdown and I am having trouble.
