    Has any one else have eggs take so long to ship? I know it takes time if you are across country, but how long can eggs be in shipment? I only live a few states away from someone I am trying to buy from. It was Mon they were shipped..today is Fri. Just wondered if the eggs will be ok that long out? I also know it's according to how they are handled during shipping. I had an order from this same state at the first of the year, it only took 3 days. I already paid, it was a lot of money for us, my husband was just laid off from work, short two years of retirement after working at a place for 25 years! Meanies! Anyway, hoping I will get a few good reports that you have had eggs out that long and did well, or even ok. I don't want to say who it is, because they may still want to work things out. Haven't heard from them today. Tomorrow is Sat..then, the whole weekend! Please..some good news here.

    I'm right near you but only have one roo myself. Take a look at Craigslist. There's a bunch on there! I've got friends with chickens around here too. I'll ask around for you.
