VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: These eggs are shipped from Italy with priority shipping only, in order to ensure fast arrival before hatching. Unfortunately, giving the current Covid-19 pandemia, postal service has experienced random delays in deliveries. This is the reason why we DO NOT assume responsibility for eggs hatching during travel for any eggs order which is sent outside Italy. As always we will try to reship or refund when possible, but this cannot be guaranteed. If you order from Italy, we do offer full reship or refund as always, in case of any problem.
