    I have been wanting to sell hatching eggs but am not sure how to ship them and keep them warm and such? Any suggestions?

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I've never shipped any hatching eggs nor bought any (I've always bought live chicks), but you might want to check out the threads on "shipping hatching eggs" at https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=shipping+hatching+eggs. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in shipping your eggs.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Good luck shipping your eggs. Not an easy task. I have known people to pack them in saw dust or even sand. Some people bubble wrap them. Follow the link that Michael has provided and hopefully you can find some information on this.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!
