These eggs are from my non-hatchery flock that I've been working on for a few years now. Very winter hardy birds and excellent foragers. The hens also make excellent broodies and mothers. The chicks are very robust, healthy, and very inquisitive. Due to the many variables involved with shipped hatching eggs, I am not responsible for your hatch rate, nor for any damage incurred to the eggs while in USPS transit. I pack each egg in individual bubble bags and place them in an egg carton. I then use plenty of packing material inside the box to ensure the eggs do not shift around while in transit.
