    As far as I know, there are no more DOA in the Netherlands than in the US, despite the packaging being minimal. If a breeder has a DOA too often, he's out of business pretty fast.
    Maybe the packages go through more hands in the US? Or are mailmen just waaayyy rougher over there?

    It's because you didn't see how I've packed those 26 pedelings of my brood or how @KezyGLA packs and ships.

  3. I have seen very shabby packing from Poland a couple times but thats it. Most European packing is spot on.

    Parcels are in transit for up to 5 days (when coming from another country) and arrive just fine. Unlike US which use overnight

    Overnight is common, but spring through fall 2-3 day shipping is also pretty common...still less than 5 though.

    Poland packages can be a hit or very miss. I've had slings arrive in a dram vial wrapped in one layer of news paper, a layer of aluminium foil, and a layer of brown packaging paper. It was in transit for five days... I was very lucky the sking arrived alive and well :eek:
