    This is making me crazy! I bought eggs from 4 different states that should have all shipped out on Monday. I received eggs from Texas on Wednesday. I expected 3 pkgs to be at the po today.[​IMG]
    Nothing from Fla, Ohio or NC. All closer to me than Texas. I'm getting worried about the little buggers.

    I'm also waiting for eggs shipped Monday. I wouldn't worry too much until they don't come today. Do they have tracking numbers?

    They didn't come today. I had the P.O. hold all my packages for the week and I stop in and check each day. Nothing today.

    Then I would be a little concerned. But with the holiday rise in packages being sent, who knows? Maybe they're just a little slow. You could contact the sellers and ask if they got a tracking number. I always do when I ship eggs, for this exact reason.

    I had the same thing happen a couple weeks ago, and I was freaking out. For some reason it took eggs from VA (across the country) 2 days to get to me and eggs from Texas (a lot closer) 4 days. Both shipped the same way. Keep waiting, and hopefully it'll all turn out okay!

    BTW, I candled the eggs from Texas last night (that took so long to get to me) and only 1 appears to be clear. Who knows WHAT the PO was doing, but luckily they weren't scrambling all of my eggs...
     
  6. I sold eggs on e-bay last month to CA(I live in MD)...the buyer didn't get them for weeks and then e-mailed me on the 21st day and they got them!!! I was SO mad at the PO! I sent them Priority and had a confirmation on them...that's all the confirmation did was tell me that they had been shipped on the day I shipped them and then 21 days later said the item was received!!! I was SO mad! I called the USPS and they didn't seem to care at all...never apologized or anything. [​IMG]
