    Wrap, pack and ship. Nothing to candle and see until they have been in the bator for 6-8 days.

    Just my opinion.. but if you are selling eggs..and shipping them.. you really should candle them for hairline cracks before shipping them out to a customer

    I got several with hairline cracks.. none of them developed at all .. so in essence I was sent a few bad eggs.. the eggs were well packaged.. and the ones i had received with hairline cracks I could tell were done at the seller's home.. since one even had a piece of debris in the widest end of the crack

    I did notify the seller when I received them.. and never heard back
     
  5. Hi! I always candle prior to wrapping to check for flaws. I find hairline cracks, odd places in the shell, air cells on the wrong end, etc. --- usually, they are fine to set here at home, just not suitable for shipping.
