This listing is for our original, naturally spotted quail eggs. For our COLORFUL Egg Announcements and Invitations, visit our other listing:

These customizable quail egg pregnancy announcements and baby shower invitations are sure to be memorable keepsakes for all who receive them.

Each unit contains an adorable, real quail egg nestled into a bed of Spanish moss in a box with "crack me" stamped on the inside of the top flap. The unfertilized quail eggs are purchased from a local farmer, emptied and cleaned, and your customized, rolled note is slipped into the inside to await the big reveal when your recipients crack the egg! Note that because the color of these beautiful little eggs varies in nature, not all eggs will look alike.

The little brown boxes are tied with raffia ribbon and packed snugly and individually into bubble-wrap-padded boxes for individual mailing to your recipients. These 3"x3"x3" white shipping boxes are called "indestructo" shipping boxes for a reason. They will keep your delicate invitations safe and sound in the mail.

To order, simply add to cart, select your desired quantity, and write us a "note to seller" with the information you would like on your egg announcements. You may customize any of our message styles pictured, OR you can contact us with your own special phrasing that you would like printed on the notes inside the eggs. Keep in mind that the notes are 3"x1", so you'll want to keep your words short and sweet!

We'll send you a digital sample image of your note for you to proof read within 24 hours, and your eggs will ship 1-3 business days only after you give us the green light to print!


You will receive your individually packaged units (in their uncrushable boxes) in a larger box for your convenience. The white mailers will be ready to address and send as soon as you receive them!

When you take a stack of these little boxes to the post office to mail them to your friends and loved ones, you'll be happy to know that these tiny boxes are so small and light (under 3 oz.) that they qualify for USPS First Class shipping at only $2.54 per box.

Curious about the total shipping cost of your order? Please see the bottom section of this description.
