    I received 1 doz eggs,each wrapped in a piece of paper towel and placed in an egg carton.Egg carton was put in shredded newspaper in a priority box. I thought it was standard to bubble wrap each egg or is that just me? Well one had a pinhole crack and 1 the air sac is loose(I am guessing that means its no good).

    The pinhole crack you can seal with candle wax or parrafin. Just candle frequently to be sure it's not contaminated. The loose aircell may fix itself. Depends on how bad it is detached. I would set it just to be sure. One of the best hatches I had was eggs wrapped in toilet paper. [​IMG] Sounds like they made it pretty for shipped eggs!
