    Alot of things happen to those shipped eggs. I wonder about x-rays. If you line your box with aluminum foil, I don't think xray can get thru that.

    I have no idea. I have NEVER, EVER had a box of eggs that have been X-rayed. I think a lot of egg sellers use it as an excuse for 0% hatches. Several people have sent me eggs that didn't even say hatching eggs on them and I have always had eggs hatch or at least start developing.

    That would be if they didn't have bomb-sniffing dogs??[​IMG]
