I have a doz of eggs for sale if anyone is interested. I forgot to mark the ones from the 16th, so those are guesses on what they are but there's only 3 choices. The known eggs are:
2 pure black australorp, 3 pure golden laced Wyandotte, and 2 new Hampshire X GLW crossed eggs. The other 5 eggs are of those 3 possibilities.

But I also wanted to see what yall have found to be the best way of shipping hatching eggs? I know that the better they're wrapped and padded the better the hatch rate is. Later once they are grown up I will have purebred lavender Orpington eggs available, as well as my australorps and wyandottes.

It's not environmentally friendly but the soft egg crate foam - like the stuff used for stuffing a pillow - works great. We just put eggs in this evening - Speckled Sussex and Wheaten Ameraucana

I use pipe insulation foam, on each egg, bubble wrap on top and bottom, bubble wrap on all sides of the box, shredded newspaper for filler.
