Our breeding stock have now completed their annual autumn moult and replenished their reserves and are now in peak condition to start the breeding season. Mother nature timing for this is usually around Spring but can vary from breed to breed. The best time to hatch and grow young to their full potential is when the days start to lengthen out, warm up and food is more abundant (before feed was readily available in a sack!)
We have available for sale different types of hatching eggs from chicken eggs to duck eggs to pheasant eggs and guinea fowl eggs. Each of these varieties is only available during their particular breeding season so please check the best times to hatch.
Recommended Hatching Time Frames and Egg Availability:
We courier nationwide. Please note we have a minimum order of 6 hatching eggs. Please order in good time as we have very limited availability across the breeds. To ensure you get what you want we recommend ordering a week ahead. All hatching egg orders need to be confirmed with immediate payment to ensure we hold and collect your eggs for you. We only send eggs on Mondays and Tuesdays (with the exception of overnight town delivery to the NI - best to talk with us) If you choose to cancel at short notice please note we do not refund. Please bring your own egg trays or cartons when collecting eggs directly or we have egg cartons for sale.
Hatching eggs from our heritage breeds will be now available a little later than usual this season. Not only has the very cold weather caused us a few delays but our orders for heritage pullets this season are requiring us to hatch most of these early eggs. Once we are up to speed on our hatching we will have hatching eggs available for sale. Most likely late September/October onwards. As they become available we will list them here on our website under Chicken Eggs.
