I will incubate your eggs for you! (Central NJ)

    I’m located in Mercer County, NJ, and am the proud owner of a new Incuview incubator. Unfortunately, my enjoyment of incubating and hatching far outstrips the number of chickens I am able to keep.

    Right now, I’m still a rookie so would be willing to do it entirely for free while I master best practices. However, I’m a diligent learner and my last hatch rate (with shipped eggs, in a fiddly Farm Innovations) was 80%. I work from home so can guarantee I’ll have an eye on them the whole time. If hatching from a variety of eggs, I will use color-coded zip ties to differentiate the chicks.

    So, if you are looking to hatch some eggs in my area, but don’t want to or cannot do it yourself, let me know!

    Note: You may ship eggs to me, but the live chicks must be picked up in person.

    Capacity: 27 chicken eggs (more for quail, fewer for duck, turkey, or goose)

    Availability:
    Now to April 17th
    May 15th and on

    Disclaimer: While I will obviously strive to follow best practices and treat your eggs as if they were my own, certain factors will be out of my control, like fertility, power outages, genetic issues, and damage from shipping. If you choose to go this route, you acknowledge that it is possible not all eggs will hatch, and will not hold me liable for any damages.

    Thanks! I was moved to post this because I saw two people in other states mention needing/using someone else to hatch for them, and I thought - I could do that!
    I hope I can help some people out. :)

    I suppose I could also phrase this as:

    If you're in the area, have extra eggs, are willing to let someone else hatch them, and can take all the offspring back, you would be doing *me* a kindness to let me do it!
