Hatching Eggs

 

CrAcKinG NeWs!  It is Time to Hatch!

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.
