    I <3 usps

    It wasn't just plants that arrived quickly and healthily for affordable flat rate shipping, but fragile (officially labeled on the box) chicken eggs that shipped from Virginia to California through USPS. The eggs arrived within the week of being shipped and 4/9 of the eggs eventually hatched; the chicks did not exhibit any external abnormalities.

    I've used USPS so much that the few times they messed up is a throw-away count versus the amount of times they did it right and on time. All my plants have come USPS to my knowledge and I wouldn't say any of them have been hurt due to USPS handling/shipping practices.

    Yeah I have had mostly good experiences with USPS. I find it to be a government service that I would not want to see cut...

    It's the new 'thing' apparently to live in the suburbs and have chickens (I don't live in the suburbs so I'm not sure personally) says the internet last year, so a bunch of chicken-egg selling places have popped up online. If you google-search, you can find tons: http://www.google.com/search?q=buy+c...ient=firefox-a

    I see chickens, eggs ducks, and other birds come through all the time. Insects, reptiles, and amphibians are also frequent fliers, I have shipped hundreds of frogs out via Express mail.

    overwhelmingly popular misconception....USPS is a private entity.
