Ok, I have a dumb question. I'm kind of discouraged because the price of hatching eggs is so high, that DH can't see why I would hatch when I can buy sexed pullets for less. I understand that people have to make enough to cover feed and time and everything, but is there some reason why they don't use the Flat rate priority mail boxes? The eggs I got, cost $12 in shipping, but the box was smaller than the fat flat rate boxes (not the skinny ones) that ships any weight for $8.95. Just wondering cus $3 could make a difference for me, or do people just hike the shipping price to compensate for the low price of the eggs? I'm not talking about people here, I'm taking about Ebay etc.
