    Petty good results. Most send extras because of post office crazy ways. Most of mine was fertile but 1 of of 12. Just make sure if your getting from ebay, byc, craigslist, and/or any others read there reviews. Its mostly how are they package and temperature. Most offer heat or cold pack for a few dollars more. hope this helps.

    Also check on craigslist in you area you can just go pick them up and no shipping charge. Closer to you the better priority mail is a must no more than 3 days. I found a guy in Mississippi 5 hrs a way to ship to me.. Ask questions on the ratio rooster to hens 1r:4h is petty good to make sure your eggs are fertile. Just remember its a gamble and luck on shipped eggs. Good luck in your ventures :D
