    Anyone ever ship fresh eggs for eating? I live in NC and would love to surprise my Dad in OR with a dozen fresh eggs. Anyone ever done this? Would they be ok with Priority mail which is about 3 days. Any suggestions?

    Quote:They will be fine. Fresh eggs are good even unrefrigerated for at least a couple weeks. I would suggest not washing them before shipping. And pack them well.
    Nice thing to do for your dad.
    Funny, but I can't recall ever seeing a post like this before.

    and...

    Look at the posts about shipping hatching eggs for tips on how to package. If you just send them in an egg carton, they will arrive broken.
