    i have shipped eggs that are to arrive today and they have a tracking number but when i look up the number it has 2 places and thats it. one was processing and the other was acceptance and thats it. called post office and they said if it doesnt show up that they have it then its not here yet. i want to know were they are and i have no clue on how to find them now [​IMG] i'm worried about my eggs. does anyone have any thoughts about this.

    do you think they havent scanned the package any weres and i might still get my eggs today? could the package be lost? help please!!!!

    in no way am i blaming the seller but i am getting upset at the post office and the tracking so far

    When you track it, it should give you an expected delivery date. When did the sell ship them? Mine were sent on Wednesday and they were here yesterday. Was your address correct on your paypal?

    When I have ordered shipped eggs I can tell you that the tracking never seems to update until I get the eggs. If you did priority 2 day you should get the eggs about 3 days after they shipped.

    Hope this helps

    I literally just had the same thing happen. My eggs were sent tuesday and were swupposed to be here thursday or friday. The tracking said it was sent tuesday and then I saw nothing else. All day friday I checked and around 230 it showed it was received and 15 minutes later it was here. I wouldn't stress yet!!

    I agree with the others, the post office tracking is horrible and slow to update.

    I hope you get them today![​IMG]

    Just had the same thing happen. 2 sellers shipped eggs Saturday from Texas & Kentucky. Both said expected delievery was the 11th. I received the eggs from KY on the 11th and the ones from TX on the 13th. The eggs shipped from KY updated every stop. The ones sent from Texas was showing it stayed in Little Rock, AR till the day they were delivered. I'm still trying to figure out why my eggs went from TX up to AR to come back down to LA, and why it took 2 days longer to get the ones from TX when it's way closer than KY is!! [​IMG]

    I agree, the PO is terrible at updating until they are delivered. My delivery person has usually already called me to pick by the time the site says they are here!! It also depends on how many times a day your PO gets trucks in. My PO only gets one delivery truck in the early morning. Good luck on your delivery and subsequent hatch [​IMG]
