    Ok, I normally only ship Mon-Wed. But IF I shipped on a friday (first thing) do you think it would matter. I am thinking the package will be processed on Friday and shipped out on friday and continue on Sat. then it will go on the next truck and be driving on Sunday to the post office and get sorted/delivered on Mon.....

    What do you think???

    I might do a few test runs to see what happens...

    Not so if your buyer lives in a rural area. They would most likely get their eggs on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    yea, I agree. The eggs could be left sitting out too long. Always better to ship early in the week.

    Quote:I've had good luck with both eggs I've shipped and eggs I've purchased being shipped on saturday and being delivered on Monday......and I'm in a rural area. Since I have no mail delivery on Sunday I know they won't get to me then. I'll only ship on mondays, tuesdays and saturdays.

    Ok. I guess I will just have to a test run or two with some duck eggs and see what happens.
