Australia Post: Please provide a friendly service to post Fertile Eggs and Day Old Chicks

There are thousands of people and increasing in Australia who keep backyard chickens for eggs and as pets.
We are firm believers that hens that are able to range freely provide healthier, fresher, tastier eggs that have a true flavour to them that can't be gained from caged birds. It's great to go out in the morning and see the girls happily wandering around, free to develop as nature intended and producing their amazing little bundles of nutrition.
The only way to promote this trend to have a friendly service where people can exchange fertile eggs to hatch, and are able to send their day old chicks(as in many other countries) at small scale. With the current services there is no care given to the eggs as they are damaged most of the time during postage and we also request here to start a service for day old chicks.

      I live in an isolated area and am limited to variety and quality .Travel is vast and expensive just to buy chickens.

      I've recently decided to keep chooks again. I used to live on 5 acres outside Nanango, Qld where I had 50 or more chooks all free ranging I kept a couple of bantams for hatching eggs of my big breeds and I sold all my surplus chooks at the local flea market. Since then I had a heart attack and had to sell up and move closer to town onto a one acre place. Missing having animals I decided to get chooks again as it's a relaxing hobby and I enjoy watching them plus it's good therapy for my heart condition. I decided to hatch my own breeds in an incubator to get started and my partner who lives at his own place is having half of the chicks I end up getting and we share the cost. By hatching eggs I can avoid spreading diseases from different places so I feel it's safer and anyway I love the excitement of hatching eggs. To get different breeds I need to ask breeders to post me fertile eggs, but oh dear with mixed results.. They are often smashed or so shaken up that they have no chance of hatching. I was told they can write fragile on the packets because then they are thrown around even more. Why can't these parcels be respected to be treated with the utmost care. In other countries it's safe to send fragile parcels so why not here? Please Please help us to make this possible!!!
