Our hatching eggs are handled even more carefully than the fresh eggs. Our rule of thumb is “that’s a baby you are handling; treat it as such”.
Hatching eggs are collected frequently throughout the day, and carefully selected for good shape & few (if any) blemishes. Any foreign objects are carefully removed, and the eggs for hatching are stored in a cooler area. Ideal temperatures for eggs intended for hatching are: 60-63 degrees for eggs being set within 5 days, or closer to 51 degrees for eggs waiting more than 5 days before setting. We keep our hatching eggs at 60-63 as we only sell eggs 1-5 days old for hatching. (no older)
All eggs are barnyard mix unless otherwise noted. We generally get some purebreds and some mixed breeds when we hatch eggs ourselves. 🙂
