All eggs offered for sale herein have been produced by our own proven stock. BUT there is still no guarantee on hatching eggs end result, anything can happen during shipping or your handling, incubation, humidity, too many factors and variables, so if our terms don’t work for you, do not buy from us.

Tips for getting better hatching results!
Do not wash your eggs, do not rinse them, do not take a wet towel to them! You’ll wash off a special natural bacteria coating that protects the egg from perishing so quickly. (Why is the US the only country that washes chicken eggs for eating, when it only speeds up the perishability process? Remember egg washing is not recommended because Salmonella can move into the inside of the egg through pores in the shell, increasing the risk to consumers. Never wash an egg that is intended for incubation.
Broody hen at your home? Old English and other Bantam chickens are excellent for hatching your gamebird eggs naturally! If you’ve got one that wants to be a momma, you let her sit on your gamebird eggs for you!
When you get delivery, slowly and carefully unpack your eggs and place them in a egg tray or carton and place them points down 24 hours to let them rest from their trip and allow temp of egg to adjust to room temp. You don’t want to put a cold egg in the incubator. These tips will help a lot w hatching, friends!
