Hatch an Instagram star! These are the wild chickens you see all over social media—and not just on our Instagram account, either. Chicks from this assortment will hatch out frizzled, sizzled, silked, smooth, crested, feather-footed, naked-necked; they lay green, olive, blue, cream and brown eggs. Their size can be tiny to largefowl, but whatever the size, their personalities are sure to be funky!

Our diva breeder breeds these pen for the pure joy of it, with the goal of producing some wild combinations. The images in the slideshow above all feature real birds hatched from this collection. Your order will contain a selection of the following genetic combination, including a minimum of three different varieties. (The more eggs you purchase, the greater number of different breeds we will include):

Possible Fun and Funky Genes: Crested, Frizzle, Sizzle, Naked Neck, Silked, Smooth-feathered
Possible Breeds: Easter Egger, Cochin crosses, Silkie crosses, Polish crosses, Silchens, Naked Necks, Frizzled Naked Necks, Seramas, etc.

All of these eggs will be marked “FF” for “Fun and Funky”, so what hatches will be a surprise!You’ll love guessing what hatched and watching them grow into the most interesting members of your flock.

Strong feelings about Naked Necks?
Alright, be that way, you part pooper. We understand that Naked Necks aren't for everyone, so if you would prefer not to receive any, just state as much in the "Order Notes" field during checkout.We'll do our best to remove them from your order. However, the naked neck gene has only a 50/50 chance of presenting, so even if we don't remove them you may not get any at all!

On the other hand... we know some of you love Naked Necks, so if you fall into that boat, let us know and we'll make an extra effort to include them.

Wherever you land on this issue, though, bear in mind that Mother Nature is fickle.  Available breeds on a given hatch week will vary... which is to say, while we always do our best to accommodate preferences, we can't make any guarantees. (Our diva breeder is fickle, too, and won't accommodate requests for any except the Naked Neck.)

Like a good mystery?
If you're up to some Super Sleuthing, order some "Mystery Eggs" and see if you can guess what birds you've received! The color of the hatching egg may provide a clue but you'll need to wait until the chick hatches to see if you're even half right — the possibilities are almost endless. At $13.95 for (3) Mystery Eggs, it is a great deal, too. So order some Mystery Eggs...make some observations...consider the possibilities...and see if you can crack the code. These Mystery Eggs may hatch large fowl, bantams, known breeds and designer crosses!

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.
