Hatching Egg Buying Policy
Ok, as we all know shipping hatching eggs is risky. There are many things that can happen that will decrease the ability for the embryos to develop and the chicks ability to hatch. Example ex-poser to high temperatures or cold temperatures, x-raying, and rough handling are some things that can kill embryos. Rough handling can jar air cells lose, this can hinder the chicks ability to hatch. These are things that can happen while in transit. I have no control over these things or anything else after shipping the eggs. Like incubating techniques, how you incubate the eggs whether its under a broody hen or in a incubator this is out of my control. So if something goes wrong it is not my fault. I ship fresh eggs from pens with healthy male and female birds in them. They are fed a quality feed, and given fresh water daily. I hatch eggs from my birds and they hatch with no difficulty, but do to the shipping risk I can not guarantee you will have the same experience. There is no guarantee that the eggs will be fertile or they will hatch. I do not send replacement hatching eggs under any circumstances, please do not ask. If you want the box marked fragile hatching eggs please do not x-ray with arrows pointing up so the USPS knows to handle with caution, as the package is fragile and time sensitive. The post office now charges a $10.35 handling fee for packages with special care. So to mark the box fragile hatching eggs there will be a handling fee of $10.35 added to the shipping cost.
Egg Shipping Policy
I do not wash the eggs. I leave that up to the buyer. I have had a very high hatch rate, but I can’t guarantee yours will be the same because of things I can’t control. I do the best I can to see that my birds eggs are fertile. I have males and females in my pens. I see them breeding. I hatch the eggs myself. They are well feed and kept in a clean healthy environment, with everything they need to be happy so when these eggs leave my hands I am not responsible for what happens to them. There are just too many risk with shipping eggs like: temperature fluctuations, ruff handling by the USPS, and many, many more. I pack very well for shipping. I wrap each egg in a soft paper. This is so the eggs do not rock back and forth. Then I put them in an egg tray or carton with air cells up. If you want the box marked fragile hatching eggs please do not x-ray with arrows pointing up so the USPS knows to handle with caution, as the package is fragile and time sensitive. The post office now charges a $10.35 handling fee for packages with special care. So to mark the box fragile hatching eggs there will be a handling fee of $10.35 added to the shipping cost. I ship USPS priority mail with tracking\delivery confirmation. I only ship to the lower 48 states and Alaska absolutely no Hawaii, or international shipping.
