Packaging + Shipping

The eggs are in foam, with a top and bottom for extra support, and placed in a bed of shavings and newspaper, labeled as “FRAGILE EGGS”.

You are required to provide a phone number (at checkout) for post office pickup! I write Hold at Post Office on the box along with your number. They shouldn’t go to your house and be left at the door. Unfortunately, sometimes that does happen. You can give your post office a heads up you’re waiting on a package.

We ship priority 2-3 day in the continental U.S.

No heat packs are included in the boxes with shipped eggs, they don’t need it.

We don’t ship hatching eggs in July + August, as the temperatures are too high, but will begin again in the Fall.

Even if your eggs get delayed in transit, just make sure to candle and see that the air cell is upright, and give them 24 hours to rest before incubation. For example, I have had eggs get lost in transit for an extra four days, and 14/18 did hatch successfully.

Do you ship chicks?

We do not ship chicks, but we do offer them locally. Please order in advance, and and we can hatch for you!
