    I wouldn't unless you absolutely cannot find the breed you are looking for around you. If the eggs you're looking for are rare or rather expensive there's a risk of getting eggs that are infertile, broken, or something happens and a majority of the chicks die during incubation. I think this would depend on what you want and how easy it is to get it.

    Shipped eggs are always a gamble. I've bought eggs off of e-bay and been happy with them. Be very careful who you buy from though. Check their ratings/ how many eggs they have sold, are they certified, see if there are posts on hatch%, ask how they package the eggs etc.
