**These are blown quail eggs which means empty inside**
These wonderful little Jungle Bush quail eggs come from my remote village in Northern Thailand . They measure about 1.25 inches to 1.5 inches long. These come from happy free range quails :-) Because of this, our eggs are more off white than white-white.
I was taught the Japanese method of blowing eggs by a friend using 1 tiny hole at the base (bottom end). Once blown, the eggs are injected w/ a bleach solution to ensure everything inside the egg is sanitized as bugs often like to lay eggs (larvae) in unbleached eggs :-( They are then left in the sun to dry for several days. They will be shipped in batting so breakage should not happen. That said, even though I sell them in sets of 12, I will be sending 14 eggs just to insure you receive 12 perfect eggs. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
**Please note that due to the fragile nature of the eggs, this is a non-returnable product**
(These eggs are being sold here as well as on my WoodWoolClothNYore Etsy store.)
SHIPPING: I use Registered First Class International Airmail so things won't go missing :-) It usually takes 10-15 business days to reach the US or Europe but can take longer during the holidays.
In order to keep shipping costs as low as possible, I ship via Registered First Class Airmail when packages are under 3 lbs which takes about 10-15 days business days and via Economy Shipping if over 3lbs which usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks.
I can also ship via Express Mail Service which usually takes 5-8 days to reach the US, UK or EU.
Please note that mail can be incredibly slow during holiday periods.
