You can change the quantities of hatching eggs by entering a number before adding to wicker basket.
Although we have a very large flock and many breeding groups to collect from please understand that due to the nature of poultry and egg laying we may on occasion have a small delay in fulfilling your order.
Due to the deterioration of eggs over time we will only send eggs that are less than one week old to give our customers the best chance of viability.
Total number of hatching eggs ordered online to be sent in one shipment is 12 due to postage prices.
If anymore than 12 eggs are required please contact us for other postal options.
By paying in full today through our online ordering service, you are reserving the hatching eggs from the colour of orpington you require. This is dependent on various factors out of our control that affect egg production, and orders could take a week or two to gather together for collection/despatch. If hatching eggs are required as a matter of extreme urgency please contact us first and we will confirm any further information.
All online orders of Orpington hatching eggs will be treated on a first come first serve basis and despatched as soon as the hatching eggs in the colours you require become available.
Please bear this in mind when ordering online and if you wish to contact us to discuss the order then please do so.

OUR HATCHING EGGS POLICY
To maximise successful breeding our birds are fed a top quality breeding ration and live in a clean, well-maintained environment, with both internal & external enclosures .Whilst we make every effort to ensure the best possible chance of our birds producing fertile hatching eggs, we have to take into consideration the UK weather pattern, which often affects the way a breeding group performs. Also transportation of hatching eggs in the postal system can greatly reduce hatchability if they have been mis-handled at any point during the collection/delivery process.
We will only dispatch fresh hatching eggs (max 7 days old).
All hatching eggs will be packaged in purpose-made polystyrene boxes.
Please ensure that all hatching egg received through the post are allowed to stand pointed end down, for 24 hours before the incubation process begins.
Our policy is that we offer a minimum 50% fertility rate on all hatching eggs purchased, however we must be notified of their infertility within 10 days of postage. We will provide replacement eggs free-of-charge but the purchaser will be responsible for all postage costs.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT SEND EGGS TO THE USA OR CANADA OR ANY COUNTRY OUTSIDE OF EUROPE.
