Description:

This assortment of intense and unusually-colored eggs will knock your socks off! It's one of our most popular assortments--everyone loves a gorgeous egg basket.

Your order will contain a selection of the following, including a minimum of three different breeds (the more eggs you purchase, the greater number of different breeds will be included!):

  • Ameriflower – Most of these chicks will hatch crested, and grow into large, friendly birds that will lay green eggs. (About 6% will lay a light brown egg.) All of the flash of a Blommehonne, with production-like laying!
  • Barred Blue Egg Layer – These are black barred hens with big combs--and often a crest! They lay very large, blue-tinted eggs about 5 or 6 times per week.
  • Barred Favaucana – We love our Favacaunas! They will be Blue/Black/Splash barred chicks, 94% of which lay a nice green egg.
  • Barred Olive Egger – Barred chicks that will lay large olive eggs!
  • Birchen Marans – Always a crowd pleaser, this breed lays the second-darkest egg that we've found, after the Black Copper Marans.
  • Blue/Black/Splash Marans – You never know what color your chicks will hatch, but you'll love the dark eggs they lay.
  • Black Copper Marans – One of our favorite breeds. Read more about them.
  • Blue Favacauna – Favacaunas! Blue ones!
  • Blue Olive Egger – These chicks will be 100% blue and lay a large olive egg.
  • Blue Sex Link – These chicks are an interesting brood. The chicks are fat with big puffy cheeks and you can sex them as soon as they hatch. The males have a white dot on their head and the females are solid blue. The chickens range from very light to very dark blue in color and the hens lay large olive-colored eggs.
  • Easter Egger – These are custom crosses! We breed for big eggs, frequent rate of lay, big beards, and hardiness. You'll find they're reliable layers of green and blue-green tinted eggs.
  • Green Magnolia – A beautiful auto sexing green egg layer that are good foragers and friendly. Some will be crested!
  • Lavender Ameraucana – Need we say more? Lavender color, beards and muffs, and blue-tinted eggs!
  • Lavender Olive Egger – These chicks will have that beautiful Lavender color, and lay large olive eggs.
  • Olive Egger – These eggs represent a number of different crosses, and lay eggs anywhere from sage green to a deep, army-type green.
  • Sex Link Olive Egger – Lays large olive eggs!
  • Southern Blue Belle – These lovely ladies will be blue sex-linked crosses, who will lay dark brown eggs at a production rate! Males will hatch with a dot, while females will not.
  • Splash Ameraucana – Beautiful splash birds that lay big blue-tinted eggs.
  • Super Blue Egg Layer – These start out as yellow chicks and they grow into white hens with black flecks. They typically start laying at the early age of 24 weeks. These hens lay HUGE blue eggs, five to six times per week.
  • Super Green Egg Layer – These chicks will lay green-tinted eggs at a production hen rate!

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, due to the importing regulations in that state.

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 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.
