Are you an elitist when it comes to chickens? Don't be afraid to admit it. (We positively luxuriate in our fowl snootiness.) We put this collection together for the unabashed snot, the holier than thou, the pompous, the name-droppers, the wanna-upstage-the-neighbors crowd... That's right, we put together this collection for YOU.

This assortment includes only our most selectively bred, rarest, hardest-to-find, and most pedigreed birds. Go on and add these to your cart. Hatch 'em in your most expensive incubator, too, and make sure to brag about it on social media.

Your order will contain a selection of the following, including a minimum of three different breeds. (The more eggs you buy, the greater number of different breeds will be included. Given your proclivities, you'll already know that you get what you pay for.)

  • Orpingtons: Isabel; Blue/Black/Splash; Chocolate; Red Cuckoo Orpington
  • Ayam Cemani
  • Marans: Birchen; Black Copper
  • Ameraucanas: Wheaten; Lavender; Splash; Blue; Black
  • Black Partridge Brahma
  • Buff Brahma
  • Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
  • Swedish Flower Hens
  • Salmon Faverolles
  • Cream Legbars
We don't entertain breed requests on assortments... But since you're an elitist—go ahead. Be a diva and demand what you want. There's an Order Notes box during checkout in which you can make your ultimatums.

Like a good mystery?
We know, we know. You're persnickety when it comes to your flock. You don't want some run-of-the-mill junk thrown in with your elite chicken breeds. Here are some good reasons to add three "Mystery Eggs" to your order.

  1. They're not run of the mill! Honestly people. Our demanding, snobbish breeder wouldn't dream of allowing anything but the best on her farm.
  2. There's room in your expensive incubator for a few more.
  3. If you do, we're more likely to give in to your diva breed demands. (Think of it like you would slipping the maître d' $20 $100 for a better table.)
  4. And Oh! The virtue signalling! Opportunities abound. Casually drop that you rescue chickens "sight unseen" to a couple of chatty kathies — your social standing will skyrocket. (No need to mention that they're bundles of joy you couldn't live without.)
Free Eggs
We like making our customers happy, even highbrow snobs like you. We'll likely throw in a few free eggs — if the mood strikes.

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: $24.95
13-39 eggs: $29.95
40-51 eggs: $54.40
52-78 eggs: $59.40
79-91 eggs: $83.85
92-117 eggs: $88.85

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, Minnesota, and US Territories, 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 to ship hatching eggs to Hawaii, Minnesota, and US Territories 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.)

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.
