Description:

On sale through August 31st!

We're SO excited to offer Salmon Faverolles eggs from show-quality lines! The birds we've acquired are truly stunning: friendly, large, and fluffy, with profuse muffs and beards---and none of the mahogany tones or smuttiness sometimes seen in hatchery Salmon Faverolles stock.

Even the most discerning Salmon Faverolles aficionado should be pleased with these beauties. If you want to exhibit, there's a good chance you'll find yourself with some beautiful, show-quality birds!

A small number of these will hatch out Blue Salmon Faverolles. Although you won't see much difference in the hens' plumage, any Blue Salmon roosters will have that lovely blue-grey plumage anywhere a regular Salmon Faverolles rooster would be black. Both plumages are outstanding. People will stop to admire your flock, and will want to know what type of birds you have!

Faverolles lay medium to large pale brown or parchment colored eggs with a matte finish, in very good numbers---four or five a week. They have a fifth toe, and feathered legs. They're good winter layers, and show some broodiness without its being excessive (so they make a great homesteading variety). They have small single combs, red earlobes, and white/pink skin.

This is one of the rare breed chicken breeds Martha Stewart asked us to deliver to her in 2017 for her own flock!

AS to personality, Faverolles tend to be on the shy side. But they're just shy, not flighty or unfriendly. They want a gentle hand, and if you pay them special attention they'll seek you out, and may even follow you around like a puppy! Although they're often chatty, they tend to have warble-ey quiet little voices, and they're usually on the lower end of the pecking order in a mixed flock.

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 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.
