    Mom said no shipping [​IMG] She keeps trying to argue that Shipping costs money and I keep telling her the buyer pays shipping and blah blah blah. Shell come around though when I use them as eating eggs instead of hatching eggs and her refridgerator is full.

    Eh. Shipping isn't fun, but it's not HARD... [​IMG]

    Just bubble wrap each egg and make sure to stuff the box full of packing material. Use a larger box than you would think in order to fit them all in.


    Label it very visibly with stuff like FRAGILE or HATCHING EGGS DO NO X-RAY.



    Edit:
    Ooh, I see your wishlist! [​IMG]
    If you buy off of eBay or perhaps eggbid, I can put some silkie chicken eggs up sometime next year.
    I plan on selling Appleyard and Silkie eggs. [​IMG]

    Wheee!

    Quote:my mom was kinda like that too but thank god she is an avid ebay'er and i told her it was just like that and she mellowed out about it! i dont have any to ship and i was confused about the NPIP stuff but ducks are like the except to the rule so idk if i have to have an NPIP certificate to ship my chicken eggs so now all fertile eggs just go into my bator!!

    The blacks with the white breasts I'd be interested in. Your ducks are sooooo pretty! Are you selling any eggs or just the hatched chicks, I'm confused [​IMG]
