    well i saw these things on mythbusters where they would turn red if the package was mishandled or thrown around. it was a sticker and i thought it may help people shipping eggs because they would know if their package was handled properly also they had different amounts of how hard it would take to set them off

    You can get them from packing supply companies, but they are rather costly. They may be of the most help attached to packages that are traveling a long distance.

    When my DH worked for Scientific Atlanta, they always used those. He suggested them to me when mailing eggs, but no idea how much they cost.

    Quote:$2-$3 each isn't too bad, you could add that onto the shipping charge if selling eggs.
    It would be a big lump sum to pay out to buy the 50 - but when broken down its not totally crazy.
