Hatching Eggs


  We are now finished hatching for this season.

There is a Time for Everything. A Time to Hatch.  A Time to Grow and a Time to Rest.

When Christmas arrives each year we know it is time to cease hatching and to let our hens (and us!) rest until next season. The days are now starting to shorten as we head towards the shortest day. The best time to hatch and grow birds onto their full potential has  now passed. We no longer make hatching eggs available for sale after Christmas. Our new season start August/September 2018.


During the breeding season 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.
