    Fed-ex has a bad habit of chucking them at my front door when the seller writes live embryos on the package. The postman had the nerve to walk them up there though.[​IMG]

    Just saw this report on the local news......I alway have shipped USPS think I will stay with them....they did flip them to much...but with eggs that should be better than those drops. from UPS and Fed-x. bad thing those marked FRAGILE had the worst treatment.....

    agree on that if the box is marked fragile or live embryos you are asking for trouble!!!
