Do you have a broody hen or do you want the fun of hatching your own chicks? I have several breeds of chickens, separated by breed, with more than one rooster in most flocks. When you place the order, I will begin collecting eggs for you and store them unwashed in a cool location. This way, you are getting the freshest possible eggs. I also candle them to ensure no cracks. When possible, please give me 3-4 days to collect your eggs.
See more pictures of my birds on www.chickneggs.com.
Getting lots of eggs from the following:
– Rhode Island Red
– Speckled Sussex
I can pull off at least a dozen of these:
– Marans (dark eggs)
– Cochin/Brahma bantam cross
– Bantam Ameraucana (blue eggs)
If you are putting in an order for other breeds, I can also include as available:
– Light Brahma
– Ayam Cemani
– silkie, regular, frizzle, satin and showgirl
– white leghorn
Keep in mind that there are no guarantees with eggs due to a myriad of variables, on both your end and on mine. I do my best to make sure you will have a good hatch. The temperature of the eggs before and during incubation, how much they are jostled, humidity during incubation, an undetected issue in a rooster and other factors all can impact the hatch rate. Under a broody hen, a lot depends on mama; not all hens do well hatching out eggs. I incubate eggs myself and have a 75%+ hatch rate. If you want to make sure to have a certain number of chicks, I sell chicks as well, and I have chicks hatching daily for you to slip under your broody hen.
Incubating eggs gives your family the opportunity to watch the miracle of life develop. I included a couple of pictures of eggs that I have candled. At about day 7, you can see the embryo moving inside the egg (see the picture with the black spot in the egg). I never get tired of seeing this!
