    I asked a seller on Ebay if he would include a heat pack in the eggs as it is very cold here. Check out his arrogant reply:

    "It is not at all a good idea so any breeder who knows their stuff will tell you NO. Eggs I have shipped have never frozen even ones shipped to the North Pole, check my feedback. Eggs should be stored ideally at anywhere from 45 to 65 degrees prior to setting anyway. You must be new to this or you would know you never want to heat eggs before setting them :). Let me know if you have anymore questions and thanks for asking. My email is......"

    If he had answered nicely, I would have considered buying them. After his remark....NO way in, well, you know.

  7. Quote:Hi! First off, I agree with the seller. That was a nice response, to me. A heat pack in an egg box is a bad idea.
    He could have been really rude and called you #*^*&!~, but he didn't. I thought his response was polite.
    For future reference, how would this be worded "It is not at all a good idea so any breeder who knows their stuff will tell you NO.", so it doesn't hurt your feelings / is more genteel to you?

    I found the response from the seller belittling at best. Not very nice tone at all.

    Again, that is your opinion. I do know etiquette for buying and selling eggs as I have done both. I also have sense enough to know that while the eggs do not need to be a balmy 75 degrees, they need some protection from the postal services ill treatment of eggs while it is sub zero wind chill.​
