Hatching eggs

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to guarantee a hatch.  Rest assured, however, that we have great success with our shipping method.  Each egg is individually wrapped in foam or bubble wrap.  The eggs do not touch the sides of the box.  Eggs are priced by the dozen or half dozen.  If ordering over 1 dozen of any specific breed, you will need to order 2 of that product number and pay shipping for both boxes.  Shipping hatching eggs is risky business.  

We will email you a USPS delivery confirmation number upon request.  

Once your eggs arrive, you will want to set them out to get to room temperature.  Simply put them in an egg carton, large side up, for 6 - 12 hours.  


Poultry is shipped via USPS with delivery confirmation.  Delivery confirmation number will be provided via email upon request. 

CT- Buyer responsibility to call for poultry permit.  860 713 2508 M-F 8:30-4.

MN- Only chicks are able to be shipped to the state of Minnesota at this time.
