Shipping Information

Now shipping orders Monday – Friday to ensure we’re shipping you the freshest hatching eggs possible!

Hatching eggs are collected fresh and are shipped in the order they are received. This means we may not be able to ship your order immediately. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about the estimated shipping date or need your order shipped on a specific day.

We ship all hatching eggs in special purpose foam shippers to protect your eggs from damage. Each egg is surrounded by foam that provides a stable environment, absorbs impacts from rough handling, and prevents excess moisture from temperature changes. We very rarely have any broken eggs during shipping. The foam also provides protection against air cell detachment caused by hard impacts during transit.

Eggs being shipped for hatching are collected fresh, inspected, and very carefully packed to minimize damage during shipping. No matter how carefully we pack them, shipped eggs may experience rough handling during transit which can affect the viability of the eggs. Due to conditions out of our control, we can not guarantee the eggs to hatch. We DO guarantee that the eggs shipped to you are fertilized, very fresh, and are eggs that we would put in our own incubators.
