    i know there is a egg swap BUT, what do those of us do when we have a surplus of fertile eggs and we dont want to ship them out for fear of something happening. (IE. getting lost en route, breakage, stolen, etc) . is there any local swaps that people in this predicament could have? i know here very soon i am gonna have a huge surplus of not only eggs but chicks too. i would love to see some local action like this. maybe meet in a very public place and swap eggs in the parking lot? im sure i can get permission from a grocery store down the street from me to do this! shoot the manager of it has his own chickens! i would love to have some input on this from everyone!


    MODs and ADMINs i do apologize if this is in the wrong forum or if this has been asked before or if its not allowed.

    I used to post my fertile eggs on Craigslist for local people.

    You ought to give shipping a try - maybe offer testing eggs to get feedback on your packaging methods. It's not that hard to do properly and once you try it a few times, it's really easy!
