    We are selling Brown Chinese hatching eggs. These are separately located from all other flocks so you will get purebreds. We are located in the south and they have been laying now for 2 weeks and we have confirmed fertility.

    They are priced at $1.75 each + shipping costs .These are large eggs and weigh about 3 to 4 times the poundage of eggs. I put .01 in the shipping category so that I can compute the cost for you.

    (I can take orders of up to 6 Brown Chinese Geese Eggs at any time for shipping. You don't have to order 6 eggs. If available and not a part of another order, I'll include any extras the day of mailing. )

    I have confirmed fertility. These are young and very healthy and raised on our chemical free farm.

    Here are pictures of some of the brown chinese flock:

    In the past some of you have asked if these will be good mothers, No guarantee but here's one of the mother's of the current flock after she hatched her egg!

    When you buy these eggs, the price for the eggs and shipping includes selecting, carefully packing, packing materials, priority shipping and confirmation delivery. If extra(s) are available at the time of shipping, I'll include those as well. We only ship within the continental US.

    We ship eggs in the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs and our taking them to the post office.Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. Our local post office is so kind and puts our boxes on top of all others waiting to be picked up! Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    We are a chemical free farm and farm full-time. We feed our animals with the best feed, sprouted grains, fresh grasses, treats from the garden and loving care.

    Please check out our feedback (please scroll to bottom of pages for our more recent feedback)

    We also have feed back in the new system as you'll see above.

    When you are ready to buy, just press buy and I'll repost for the next person!

    Thanks for your interest. Happy bidding! Please pm me with any questions and have a blessed day. Nancy

    Just curious could I put these in a regular chicken/duck egg turner? Cause I looked and it costs $60 for a turner for goose eggs [​IMG]

    Thanks

    Steven, you can always hand turn them. That's what I do for my goose eggs.

    Hi Ducklover1, If you turn the eggs before school, immediately upon return from school and then before bedtime, you would get 3 turns a day and that's a minimum for the turning of geese or ducks.

    Our Geese eggs are of such a size that it would be a bit difficult to modify an egg turner to work, At least our egg turners..... The only possibility I could think of is if you developed a cut out of a piece of styrofoam of the egg length wise and use twist ties to tie it to the existing turner cups. You would basically make custom sized stryofoam holders for the eggs. out of a sheet of stryofoam like you would find on the top of a cooler. I personally have not done this with the egg turners in our styrofoam incubators. Since I've not done this, I cannot guarantee that it would work.

    I did use hand cut out molds for the goose eggs that I hatched in our cabinet and they seemed to work really well. My biggest concern with them was that they were getting enough air circulation being encased by the styrofoam so I made the styrofoam fit only on the end parts of the egg so it could breath... Hope this helps. Nancy

    CatWater, I think my pm didn't get through to you.

    Please measure your brinsea Mini and see how tall the top is and how wide (across) it is..... I'll then measure some eggs and send the sizes to you. You might also way to try to contact the manufacturer and see. I know our duck eggs fit in a brinsea mini because one of our customers ran a hatch with them in there.

    Please do pm me and let me know what you find out. Have a blessed day. Nancy

    Many of you have asked detailed questions about how we ship eggs, so I've developed a more detailed narrative on this process....

    Please go here for more information on The Garry Farm's (bargain) method - it's my BYC Page! And please don't copy parts of the narrative without giving credit to the farm. We've working on this technique for quite some time! We do welcome you to try it!

    Have a blessed day and Happy Bidding. Nancy
