    I've never shipped or had them shipped, so I don't know how they take shipping. There are people on here (I believe) that have though, if you posted in the other fowl forum, I'm sure someone would know. We have regular old homers and rollers, and some cappuchines, so no 'big' birds here.

    I can't imagine that the dove eggs would handle it very well, with how thin they are. Pidgie eggs, well, I've never seen a pidgie egg...

    Pidgey104 shipped me 4 pigeon eggs awhile back and one would have hatched if I didn't tamper with it!

    ETA: had a fully developed baby but I had the bright idea of seeing if it was dead or infertile like the other 3 and messed everything up!

    would you consider shipping me a few?

    and how much would you charge?
