    Possible Show quality Buff Orpington hatching eggs!

    My stock comes from breeder stock, not from the hatchery. These birds are huge, and fluffy compare to the hatchery stock. They lay well, and make great broody hens.

    Upon Delivery:

    Allow eggs to settle and to warm slowly to room temperature, preferably overnite before placing in the incubator. Abrupt warming from 55 degrees to 100 degrees causes moisture condensation on the egg shell that leads to disease and reduced hatches.
    We advise that the eggs be carefully unpacked and placed small end down. This will help egg settle. Ideal storage conditions include a 55 to 68 degrees F. temperature and 75% relative humidity.
    Some eggs will have a detached air cell from shipping. Incubate these eggs as well, small end down. There is still a chance for hatch.
    Shipping will be USPS Priority for $16.00 Eggs will be sent out on Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesday as available.



    As you all know shipping of hatching eggs is a gamble, so therefore I don't guarantee that you will have a good hatch, a good hatch depends on how the box is handled after it leaves my hands, also on incubation technique, and hatching technique. What I do guarantee is that you will get eggs that are no more then 4 days old when we put them in the box. I individually wrap each egg in bubble wrap and double box the eggs.

    Farmerboy16,

    I would like to order 12 Buff Orpington Hatching eggs but am unsure how the order process works from the backyard chickens web site. Do you have Buff orpington eggs and how would I order.

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    Are you shipping Buff Orpington hatching eggs right now? If yes, is there any break on shipping if i order two dozen instead of one?
