Hatching Eggs 2018

 

 

The hatching season is under way...

                                              

Our breeding season kicks off August/September each year. We will list hatching eggs as they become available from our breeding birds. Due to limited breeding stock numbers this season we will have very limited numbers of hatching eggs for sale. Please talk to us if you are unsure about numbers of eggs and how to order.

Purchasing Hatching Eggs
We usually make eggs available for sale once we have set eggs in our incubators and confirmed that roosters are working well. Hatchability is also important so we set and hatch each week. Always good to monitor the pens performance on a regular basis. We can make up a mixed dozen of whatever breeds we have available once we have filled our orders each week. This is called the Appletons Surprise Dozen and we offer this at a special price. Always good to have a bit of fun when it comes to hatching! The breeds in this dozen are all from our select breeding pens - so all heritage. Happy Hatching.

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 your hatching egg order we do not offer a refund. Please bring your own egg trays or cartons when collecting eggs directly or we have egg cartons for sale.
