Has anyone ordered hatching eggs from purely poultry? I am hoping to order some in the spring to incubate, but I would like to have opinions on the company beforehand. I am wanting to order Cayuga duck hatching eggs if that helps.

im currently hatching chicken eggs from meyer and have quail eggs from purely poultry ready to set next week. I have been very happy so far with the quality and service with both hatcheries. I ordered silkie chicks from Purely Poultry that are now 8 weeks old. 14 are happy, healthy and beautiful. They refunded for #15 due to leg issues. He is now my “special needs” chick and brooder box captain! Check back with me around Thanksgiving for an update on quail hatch!

Thank you! I am hoping they will have some Cayuga eggs available around spring. I really want my kids to be able to watch a live hatch. Good luck with your quail!

If possible, I'd try to find eggs from a breeder instead :) The ducklings you hatch will be much better quality that way, and you can find a breeder that selects for the nice black eggs, if that's what you're looking for. Hatcheries really don't select for egg color or good breed quality.
