First: Be sure to include Your  NAME, and mailing addess with your order (even if you are a regular customer) It helps to speed things up.

Next: Please Be Patient,  Our goal is to get back to you within 24 hours, however we do take weekends, holidays and occasional random days off.  Sometimes we even stop long enough to eat and sleep…yes…I know it’s hard to believe.
We do not use any chemicals in our cleaning process so all of our eggs take Pysanky and other types of dyes very well.
When possible our eggs are cleaned through 1 hole in the center of the egg.  Very small eggs such as finch may have 2 holes.
Now Finally, For the ordering part:  We deliberately do not have an on-line order form because our inventory changes daily.
Here’s what you do:   Simply  view the eggs below and decide want  you want then send us an email at : eggs@brackenridgeranch.com and let us know what you are interested in and how many.  Be sure to include  your mailing address.   You can also use the contact us form
We will check our inventory and email an invoice through Paypal to you with the total amount of your order including S&H  You do not have to have a Paypal account to use them as a secure method of credit card or debit card  payment,
 Shipping and how it is calculated:
All orders are shipped via Priority Mail unless other arrangements are made.
The shipping charges are  calculated by the size of the box and the total weight of the eggs in box.
Blown eggs don’t weigh much, so on small orders you are most likely just paying for the weight of the box. 
 Handling Charges: 
Our handling fee is only $4.00  to help cover the cost of the  fees  Paypal charges us on each transaction. ( They charge a minimum of 10% of payments made to us) 
IT ALSO INCLUDES  the cost of the box, packing materials, labels, trips to the P.O etc.) We try to keep shipping as low as possible. 
  RESTOCKING  FEE:
Once your order has been placed .  We package THE EGGS and email an invoice to you. 
If at that point you change your order we have to unpack it  to either add or remove eggs per your request.  No problem,
but there will be a $3.00 restocking fee applied to your revised invoice.  sorry to do it, but a lot of time and care goes into packaging each and every egg.  It takes double our  time to redo it.
