It's possible and I know of someone doing runs, Ireland UK and back but can't think of a name right now. I have eggs posted from Germany and have brought back eggs in car but they do suffer and hatch rate is lower

Having birds brought over from GB is not a problem.. Many fanciers from North and south travel over regularely to various shows.
Mainland Europe may be a different matter due to the distance involved. As Torsten Schulz states eggs may be a possibility.
I got eggs a few years ago from Germany, not 1 was even cracked and hatch rate was very good..

Quick Question , how long does postage take with eggs from Germany?, thinking about getting some but I had eggs posted from uk and the hatch rate was really bad and alot of the air sacs were messed up!

I had some from holland within the week, posted Monday and arrived on Thr Thursday, no hatch though. Is there a technique people have to help with a ruptured air sac from the eggs being posted?

Sorry for bringing up an old thread but it's onto the same line's.
I want to get in some eggs from Europe and I am looking for information as to what website to find eggs to buy across Europe?
Mainly looking for large silkie eggs but I might try something different also.
