Fertile Hatching Eggs 


Free shipping . We guarantee the same fresh eggs that go into our own incubators that produce our chicks for our customers. Our flocks and hatchery participate in "National Poultry Improvement Plan" of the United States Department of Agriculture. However, we do not guarantee your hatchability or health of chicks due to many issues out of our control once they leave our facility (see FAQ at for more details). Eggs should be incubated within 1-2 days of arrival. We do not ship eggs to Hawaii. These eggs are from our brown eggs layers of pure heritage breeds we offer. The eggs may or may not be assorted brown egg layers and are hatchery choice. Pick up orders are $3.00 for each egg and must be preordered.

Hatching eggs are shipped on Fridays and are usually shipped the NEXT Friday after receiving the order. If you are not wanting immediate shipment of the next 2 Fridays; then please comment with your order regarding an alternate future Friday shipment date that you desire. Please have your incubator running at least three days in advance of an anticipating date of arrival.

Our fertile hatchery eggs are NOT insured by the united states post office. We are paying for a delivery receipt on the shipment so you will need to be available and home to sign the delivery receipt. Before signing, open the box to see if any eggs are broken. If any are, please note it on the delivery receipt and call us within 24 hours. For damaged eggs we will do a ONE time reshipment and we will not refund or replace after the ONE time reshipment. Customers order at their own risk with depending on the post office for safe delivery and being home to sign the delivery receipt. We only offer these eggs for sale during Feb-Aug of each year.

See FAQ for more information.
