  1. I shipped 16 buff silkie eggs to WA. And just got an email from the lady I shipped them to. Out of the 16, 12 were viable, and all 12 hatched. [​IMG] Thats amazing!

    Hello Chelsea,

    A short note to tell you that out of the 12 eggs that were viable, I had 12 GORGEOUS buff babies born last night. Just wanted you to know, and thank-you so much for the eggs and now the beautiful babies, I am very pleased and happy with them, they are all keepers. So glad we perservered and got the eggs to me, it has worked out wonderfully well.​

    How do you pack the eggs to ship and what did you put on the box? I am planning on sending some eggs from Mesa,AZ to Wampum, PA. and i want to make sure I am packing them really well to make the trip.
    Thank you!

    I wrap each egg individually in bubblewrap, and cushion them with lots of shredded paper. I show on my website how I pack. www.freewebs.com/sundownwaterfowl

    Her
    box was labled "Hatching Eggs. Do not drop, jar, or expose to extreme hot or cold" I also put "Please handle with care. Thank You!".

    I had another box go to TN I believe, I think I also sent 16 eggs and just got an email that said all eggs are growing. [​IMG]

    Wish my hatch rates from shipped eggs were like that. [​IMG]
