Description:

Cochins are popular due to their sweet personality and fantastic mothering qualities. They do go broody! They are a Chinese breed known the world over for being friendly little balls of fluff and feathers: they became "famous" when Queen Victoria of England received some as a gift and fell in love with them. In fact, Cochins are a favorite of the current Duchess of Devonshire who has written several books about her chickens. While some might say that Cochins don't lay very well, ours didn't get that memo!

These Cochins, however, are not your garden-variety! They are bantam FRIZZLE Cochins. The frizzling characteristic can only be safely bred from one parent. Your chicks will be 50% Frizzled and 50% Smooth.When they are frizzled, they have the look of a bird whose feathers have been primped by a curling iron, or blown half off by a strong wind! Something about them reminds one of an inside-out umbrella, or the first perm you ever got (and cried about). Although you would never have guessed, that perm looks perfectly charming on your chicken!

Frizzled Cochins are a good choice if you are concerned about your birds flying over fences, as their unusual feathers make flying any distance difficult. Even better, frizzle Cochins are adorable, fat-bodied, eye-catching fowl with a quirky look that won't fail to get attention--and maybe fuel the jealousy--of your neighbors. Like Silkies, Frizzles are favorites of children and all others who are young at heart.

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 unknown breeds.

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: $22.95
13-39 eggs: $29.95
40-51 eggs: $52.90
52-78 eggs: $59.90
79-91 eggs: $82.85
92-117 eggs: $89.85

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, 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 oftenthis 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.
