Fertile eggs for hatching under a broody hen or in an incubator from our range of large fowl chickens. The believed fertile eggs we have available will be from the breeds listed below. All will be very freshly laid before collection. Fertility is not guaranteed but we are getting 80-90% hatchrate at the moment but depends on the time of year. Peak fertility is in spring and early summer. Please note we are NOT posting any eggs at the moment because queueing at a post office puts us at too much risk. Eggs are priced at £2 each and you can mix and match from any types that are available.
Our chicken breeds are
- Coronation Sussex
- Swedish Flower Hens
- Araucana X Swedish Flower
- Swedish Flower X Leghorn or Ancona
- Faverolles egg which will come out Salmon or Blue Salmon
Our fertile eggs should produce chickens in various colours and all large fowl.
Please note that as we are getting 80-90% fertility on our eggs at the moment but this is dependent on your incubation methods. It is also dependent on your chosen method of delivery because we cannot be responsible for what happens to your eggs when being handled by third parties. The postal system can be very rough on eggs and therefore this can result in ruptured air sacs and poor hatches at best. Posted eggs can be as little as 20% hatch rate. We pack the eggs super carefully to try to avoid any shock to the eggs inside but we are at the tender mercies of the postal service.
Collection is consequently the safest option and the best hatch rate.
Please note Collection is the ONLY available method at the moment.
