    I have never shipped eggs but from what I have read on this site and read , some people have good luck with bying a sheet of bubble wrap and individually wrapping eatch egg then filling the box with ethere bubble wrap or packing penuts or wads of newspaper or what not then puting the wrapped eggs in it.
    I am shure someone will know more and there are links somewhere areound here to pics of how some people shipp eggs .
    Good luck.

    I have shipped eggs once and used the above method. The receiver said there were no cracks.

    I have received eggs twice with no cracks. Those shippers individually wrapped each egg , placed it in a small, wiggle free box/container then placed in a larger box stuffed with paper.

    This the way I plan on doing it from now on. This way if the box gets squashed at all there is a better chance for the inner box to remain intact.
