There is a Time for Everything. A Time to Hatch and a Time to Grow.
The breeding season has started slowly this year due to all the wet and dull days we have had over July, August and September. We are about 6 weeks behind with our hatching but as the weather starts to warm up and the days lengthen out all is now going well. Our hens are into the swing of laying and we now have some chicken hatching eggs available for sale. Spring/Summer is the time Mother Nature gets to work to reproduce. It is the best time to hatch and grow young to their full potential as the days 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:
Heritage Poultry (chicken eggs): August to January Heritage poultry hatching eggs are $3.50 - $3.75 each incl. of GST + shipping.

After using heat lamps for the last few years, we changed to the heatplate. Wow! Wish wed done this a lot sooner. The chicks love it and the power consumption is massively reduced. Speedy service and delivery.

Happy, healthy chooks
Me and the kids collected our 6 x 14 week old pullets after building our own coop and run together - a happy day after a couple of years without chooks. All hens happy and healthy and settling in well to their new home : )

Omlet Eglu Go
Our new Omlet Eglu Go and chicken fencing is fantastic and so are all the wonderful food and health products we bought through Appletons for our rescued battery hens. After just two weeks, our little flock is free range, happy and laying eggs. Testament to the great products recommended on your website.
