    There's a whole thread on shipping 40 eggs in a flat rate box on the managing your flock topic.

    You can get the boxes from the post office. I wouldn't recommend using the flat rate unless you are shipping a large amount. The post office doesn't have a very large selection, but if you go online to the usps website, you can order all sorts of boxes for free.

    DipseyDoodleDoo has a link under her name on her BYC page of how she does it. Just remember, lots and lots of bubble wrap! [​IMG]

    Priority Mail boxes are free at the PO. You do not have to use the flat rate if you don't want to.
