EGGS NOT OLDER THAN 1 DAY WHEN SHIPPED. SHIPPING IN FLAT RATE BOX, 1-3 DAYS DELIVERY. THIS IS THE REAL PRICE OF THE SHIPPING BOX WITH USPS.
I took me a year to find 2 broody hens and to be good mothers, too.If you look at the pictures, the hen from the first batch from this year is one of the 2 broody hens I started with.She still hatches 2-3 times a year, and she is almost 5 years old. In the last 4 years I crossed them and let them hatch to wake up the motherhood gene.Now my nest boxes are full with broody hens. The small and medium size hybrid hens are the ones I do my hatching with, they are the best not the pure breeds.Pictures are of my actual birds which I have now. Not all of them are in the pictures. All our chickens are hatched naturally, no hormones, no antibiotics, and free range.
Pure breeds which we still have :
Ameraucana = lays olive eggs
New Hampshire red
Rhode Island Red
Gold Laced Wyandotte
90% of our chickens are hybrids. You can look at the pictures to see some of them. We started crossing pure breeds and let them cross.
Compared with pure breeds hybrids are healthier,stronger, lay more eggs, and they are good mothers (broody, hatch babies, and raise them.) They take the best genes from 2 breeds.Our hybrids crosses are hens for laying not table birds.
My hen's hatching rate is around 90% but I do not use incubators, I use my girls. This is how I renew my flock.
Please understand that your hatching rate depends of your experience at incubating.
