    Presently, I'm going to have more eggs than I know what to do with, and I want to be able to share my beautiful birds with others!

    I'm looking into how to pack hatching eggs best to ship them and I found this on eggbid: http://www.eggbid.com/help/packeggs.cfm

    Any
    suggestions, improvements or feedback?

    If there's already a thread on this that I didn't find, feel free to direct me!

    I stuff newspaper around the box walls, to fill in empty spaces with the eggs in the middle. Other wise looks fine.

    They hatched on April 29, and they just went outside today as they were driving me nuts in the brooder! There's 19 of them and I'm thinking of taking some of them to the swap in Cedartown on Saturday.....
