At Cackle Hatchery, we offer hatching eggs for those who want to witness the incredible process of life forming and baby chicks hatching out of their shells. We have a variety of options for you to order  eggs that you can place under your own broody hen or in your incubator. Don’t have an incubator? We also offer incubators for purchase on our website. You can order one here.

It’s important to note that while our hatchery has a 70% to 80% hatch rate for these breeds, factors such as shipping and temperature variations outside of our control can impact the hatch rate. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a specific hatch rate after delivery. However, we can guarantee that the eggs you receive are the same fresh eggs that we use in our own incubators to produce chicks for our customers.

We take pride in our flocks and hatchery and are committed to participating in the National Poultry Improvement Plan of the United States Department of Agriculture.

If you have any questions or concerns about our hatching eggs, please do not hesitate to contact us. We want you to have a positive experience and are always happy to assist in any way we can.
