Only our best shell quality eggs gathered warm are used for hatching. We feed quality feed and forage to assure you of the best hatchable eggs. We cannot guarantee hatching eggs, however we have had up to 100% hatch rate.
We are happy to accept your order by phone. No eggs are shipped until payment is received.
We also are available to assist with trouble shooting problems during the hatch. We advise you to use two thermometers to verify that the temperature is accurate. That is the number one reason for problematic hatches!
We include enough unmedicated starter feed for your chicks for the first 10 days. Beyond 10 days, chicks become less manageable in their small brooder. At this point you may want to find a permanent home for them. Feed stores usually have plenty of poultry customers or you may return them to our farm.
