I guess that I didn't explain myself very well.

No matter how foolish the day of the week the eggs were shipped on.............a package, no matter what it's contents might be, should not appear to be "kicked" by the USPS. Last I knew, throwing/kicking around eggs was not in their best interest.

It's been my experience that pheasant eggs generally do not ship well.   The fact that you got any to hatch is a bonus.  I've had dozens of shipments from a number of breeders with my best hatch at about 15%.  Eggs I have been able to buy locally have hatched 60-70%.
                  let's see 1000 eggs $250 (on the cheap side) 150 hatch  (15% hatch rate)=$1.66 per chick ,not to smart business wise  and that is if you can find pheasant eggs for a quarter a piece which is very unlikely

The eggs were not a quarter a piece and the $$$ Costs/losses were a lot higher.  Good thing I'm not in business!  I was hoping to get a start on goldens or reeves or something, but none of them hatched.  Got a few ringnecks from the eggs.  The only eggs I found local were ringnecks.  Shipping chicks here is a problem too, didn't find anyone with chicks who could ship here.  Such is life, on the bright side, while the rest of you have been burning up we've had cool weather, highs in the 60's and 70's.

I said a quarter a piece for eggs only as guide also said it is almost  impossible to find eggs at that price I agree with you trailboussa that the post office mishandled the eggs   but you have to be a complete moron to ship eggs on a Thursday  :angel:

Hello All, I've gotten several boxes with damaged eggs from them and rare eggs at that. I complained the post office said that they weren't insured and the sender of the eggs had to be the one to complain. Well I called him up just to see if there was a snoball chance in hell something could be done. I've got chicks out my *&+ at the timr they need t grow $ and hunters await. I figured I'd call him up instead of posting in here but the way he was to me I lost all respect.  "what idiot would buy eggs on a thurs" lol I savvy that but all was saying they got them in 2 days I had hope.  Thanks GOD BLESS, Tommy
