    Have any of you shipped hatching eggs through the UPS or FedEx? I want my eggs shipped overnight & would like to know if either of these companies are easier on packages or actually pay attention to the FRAGILE posted all over the box. Thanks

    I was told for our area that ups and fed ex will not ship living things so shipping live embryos through them is out you have to use usps. To get them overnight you would need to ship them express probably but for me regular priority shipping I usually get my eggs in about 2 or 3 days and they always call me to pick them up at the post office.
