Description:

Everyone at My Pet Chicken loves Easter Eggers! Eggs usually come in shades of blue and green... including aqua, olive, sky blue, sage, mint, turquoise and more. Rarer colors are tan, creme or beige.  Children in particular love gathering the fancifully colored eggs: it takes on the atmosphere of a springtime egg hunt year round! Colored eggs are always a more brilliant color early every laying season, and slowly fade as the season progresses. People you share eggs with will be astounded that these eggs are from chickens--or else it will look to them as if you took the trouble to dye them all. However, your eggs will be "colored by hen, not by man!"

Chicks from these eggs are adorable with fuzzy, bearded faces, and they hatch in many colors and patterns. Many start out brown with stripes; some are creamy or yellow. They feather out into adult plumage that runs the spectrum of white, black, brown, blue and various combinations. Our Easter Eggers are not rumpless like Araucanas, but will have normal tails and pea combs. Most Easter Eggers will develop slate (blue) or willow (green) legs as they grow, although this is not usually apparent in brand new chicks.

Easter Eggers begin laying at seven months, a little later than other breeds, but once they begin, they are good layers of large and sometimes extra large eggs that vary in color, as explained above. (Each hen will lay her personal color, however!) They will occasionally brood, but are not particularly prone to it.

To top it off, these birds are smart and exceptionally friendly. They are a great choice for a family flock. If free ranging, they will usually run to greet you when you emerge from the house. They are, simply put, a fun and whimsical chicken to own, and great for beginners. The only problem is that they will spoil you so that you may never want another type of bird! Our Easter Eggers make exceptional pets that you will enjoy for years.

Please note:  While 95% of Easter Eggers do lay a green egg, the remaining 5% can lay pinkish or brown eggs.  There is no guarantee as to what color egg your hatched hen will give.  Each hen will give ONE egg color.  The egg color will not change day by day.  For example, if your hen has just laid a green egg, then don't expect the second egg to be pink.  (The color of the egg they hatched from does not indicate the color of egg they will lay.)


Hatching Egg Product Features:

Will my eggs arrive intact?

My Pet Chicken absolutely guarantees that the fertile hatching eggs you order from us will arrive intact and ready for incubation. If any eggs for which you have paid arrive cracked or broken, we will refund, or reship them in the case of 50% or more of the eggs being damaged. Please contact us within 48 hours of receiving damaged eggs to report the issue, and provide photos of the damage, if possible.

Do you guarantee all my eggs hatch?

Our eggs are gathered daily, shipped no more than 3 days after they are laid, and stored properly to ensure freshness and improve viability. Even so, most people are happy to get a 50 percent hatch rate on shipped eggs. Firstly, even if the eggs are intact on the outside, handling by the post office can damage them enough that they do not hatch. The internal arrangements of a chicken egg are relatively delicate and can be disturbed even if the outside is completely intact.

Secondly, we cannot guarantee your hatch rate because we have no control over the incubation conditions with which you try to hatch them. Eggs will not develop into chicks unless exacting conditions of temperature and humidity are met--and even a one degree difference in temperature can cause them not to hatch or can cause the chicks that do hatch to be weak! If your thermometer is inaccurate, if the power goes off in your home during incubation, if your incubator is dirty: all these issues are simply beyond our control.

Hatching egg results will vary even if you are experienced, so while our eggs are guaranteed to arrive intact and beautiful, we cannot guarantee your results.

How do the shipping charges work?
Hatching egg shipping is calculated in one of two ways, depending on the breeder: Either they're shipped in pre-paid "packs," where shipping is marked as free and is built into the cost of the product--OR it's based on the number of eggs you're purchasing. Eggs are always shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

If the eggs you're looking at aren't marked "ships free," this means shipping will be charged. Current rates are as follows:

1-12 eggs: $25.95
13-39 eggs: $32.95
40-51 eggs: $51.00
52-78 eggs: $68.90
79-91 eggs: $91.85
92-117 eggs: $98.95

As you can see, the more eggs you buy, the better value you get from shipping--and it costs you no more in terms of shipping to jump from three to twelve eggs, or from eighteen to three dozen! Unfortunately, we cannot ship fertile hatching eggs to Hawaii or Minnesota, due to the importing regulations in those states.

Can I choose which day my eggs will arrive?

When you place your order, you will be able to choose your preferred week of shipment. Your order may ship anytime that week, Monday through Saturday, depending on the hens' cooperation. Should there be an issue with your order, we will attempt to contact you.

Some of our flocks are kept at different facilities, so if you are ordering multiple breeds or assortments, your eggs may not all arrive at once. We will do our best to coordinate, but we cannot guarantee they will all arrive on the same day. If you are uncomfortable with staggered hatches, you may want to place your orders separately or contact us for further instructions. We are happy to help!

We are unable ship hatching eggs to Minnesota or Hawaii due to importing regulations in those states.

Will the post office deliver the eggs to my door?

Shipping labels on our hatching egg boxes indicate that the post office should "CALL ON ARRIVAL." This reduces the handling and extremes of temperature the eggs experience en route to you, and can ultimately increase the viability of your eggs. However, very often this information is not seen by the carrier, and eggs are delivered to the physical shipping address on the label anyway.

If it is imperative to you that the eggs not be delivered directly to your shipping address, you can change the ship-to address on your order to be the address of your post office of choice, attn: 'your name'. If you choose to do this, make sure to include a valid phone number so the post office can reach you when the box arrives. (And please, don't order anything but hatching eggs with this ship-to address.)

Alternately, you might consider calling the post office before your eggs arrive to let them know how you'd like them handled.

If I order an assortment, how will I know which breeds I'll receive?

Each egg you receive will have a breed code written on it, and within the package there will be a breed code list, so you can easily identify which breed is which.
