    How are doing? Ebay has egg shipping foam, foam peanuts from any shipping outlet or ebay. I get foam from my work from our deliveries supplies from grainger. they pack with foam and bubble wrap. I guess you can get from any pet supply store that has meds or vaccinnes ship to them also.Tractor supply co has been saving Styrofoam for me also. I hope this helps

    Bubblewrap can usually be purchased at Walmart, as well as shipping boxes, or if you think flat rate would be cheaper - usually with eggs it's not but it depends upon where you send them to, what kind of eggs and how many - but you can get flat rate boxes free at the post office or through the USPS website.
