  • Hi there would like to order penedesenca fertile eggs and empordanesa hatching eggs if you have some thank you so much.
    Hello, I'm wondering if your flock is producing at this point. I'd like to order 12 Hatching Eggs of your Black Penedesencas. Can you let me know the process so I can order ASAP.
    Good morning! I have some Black Penedesenca but I would like to shake up the gene pool a little. Do you have hatching eggs available? Glad to find someone else with them!
    I am looking for a large quantity of black Penedesenca hatching eggs. Do you sell them and currently have any? I would need them shipped to Miami if that is possible.
    I am interested in adding Black Penedesencas do you sell fertilized eggs or new hatchlings?
    I am from St Louis but we live in Texas.
    Perhaps you know from your profile here.
    Can I collect eggs pre-incubation at 70 F for 3-4 days? How about 63 F?
    Cooling them to 55 is a challenge.

    That is doable. While not ideal, you can collect eggs from just over 32 to about 80F. About 82 is where cell division begins. On the cold end, as long as ice crystals haven't formed, they can still be viable.

    I hope that by shortening the storage period the hatch rate will stay up. We shall see.
    I saw you say you raise a breed with less than 200 in the country- what breed do you have?

    Penedesencas, Black variety. The only DP variety of the 4. The egg varieties are Wheaten, Partridge and Crele. Some of those may be more common than blacks. There is only one hatchery that sells black Penes but that is Sandhill Preservation and they have very few birds. I'm sure I have more than they do.

    Wow, that is very rare!
    A friend of mine has 18 chickens who all get the same food. One of her chickens lays an egg that tastes horrible. She describes it as you were tasting someone's bad halitosis. She figured out which chicken it was & it constantly lays these horrible tasting eggs. Is there a reason for this & can anything be done to change it. She is sending me a photo but from her description, I suspect it is a Rode Island Red.
