Every one of the my eggs I opened has a “bulls eye” (picture #2). These eggs are from the same pens i have sold eggs from this year. Some of them laid the same day and I had more eggs than buyers. THIS is why breeders get frustrated when people message and say “nothing developed” or leave negative feedback saying “nothing hatched “.
I have hatched over 500 chicks out of these pens. They WERE FERTILE when they left my possession. Shipping eggs is very, very hard on the development process. If the eggs arent completely scrambled in the first place.
If you are buying shipped hatching eggs you MUST understand that there is no guarantee you will get one single solitary chick. The risk is too high. So no, i dont guarantee eggs. No, I don’t “have to” replace or refund anything. YOU CHOSE to buy hatching eggs shipped through the mail. YOU assume ALL risk of loss as the buyer.
If you want a guarantee of live birds, BUY LIVE birds. Yes, they are more expensive per bird. But for that 150 bucks in eggs, you could have gotten a top notch trio of whatever you were wanting.
Regardless, its not the sellers fault that your eggs didnt incubate. (Yes, I know there are crooked sellers out there. Im talking about the 95% of good ones). Most of us do try to compensate for hatches that didnt go well. I have sent out several sets of eggs for the cost of shipping. Why? Because i want people to have a good experience. And i genuinely feel badly when people dont have a good hatch. But i am in NO WAY OBLIGATED to do so. Messaging me, telling me i am, is the surest way to make sure it doesnt happen.
Buyers have a “bad seller” list. And sellers have a “bad buyer” list. Understand what youre getting into BEFORE you make a large purchase.
PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING! PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE LEAVING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK! IF THE POST OFFICE BREAKS SEVERAL OF YOUR EGGS, PLEASE CONTACT ME I WILL USUALLY REPLACE! BE FAIR!!! IF YOU CANNOT AGREE TO THIS PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE FROM ME! I am a small family farm and I will do what I can to make sure you get some beautiful birds but don’t just leave me bad feedback without even contacting me first! That just isn’t fair!
**** We cannot guarantee how our egg(s) will be treated while they’re in transit through the postal system nor can we guarantee delivery within a specified time after we ship the eggs. Extreme temperatures, low air pressure in airplanes, rough handling, delays in transit and delivery, and X-ray machines can all affect the hatch-ability of eggs… But we do label boxes with bright yellow and orange stickers stating their live contents on hopes of better care. We also cannot control the conditions under which you incubate the eggs. FOR THESE REASONS WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE HATCH-ABILITY OF THE EGGS WE SELL. Please leave feedback at the time you receive the eggs, not after you’ve incubated them. Please do not leave negative feedback if your eggs don’t hatch or if they were delayed in transit. Again, if you cannot accept these terms please do not purchase. ****

Fertile Chicken Hatching Eggs – 5 eggs – Assorted Barnyard mix. Condition is New. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
We have our incubators running yearly hatching and checking fertility. We cannot guarantee hatch rates. We have a 97-98% hatch rate here at the farm but shipped hatching eggs usually have 50% hatch rate or less. This is normal with all shipped eggs due to the many factors that eggs go through during shipping, your incubator, humidity, temperature, etc.
Be prepared for your eggs by having your incubator running 2 days prior to delivery. When you receive, gently unwrap and let sit for 24 hours on their side so they can settle before placing in your incubator.
Each may be a purebred or cross of leghorn, Plymouth Rock, Rhode Island Red, ameraucana, Marian, Sussex, Delaware, Lavender Orphington, AYAM CEMANI, production Red, and many more.
I do not wash the eggs to preserve the natural bloom and I also suggest that you do not wash them prior to or during the incubating.
***** Please leave me positive feedback when you receive your eggs. Feedback should be given on how fast I mailed them and how well I packaged them, not how the post office treats them after they leave my hands or the hatch rate as I cannot control that. I will send you the most fertile, freshest eggs I can, most are layed the morning I send them. I do my best to make sure they are as safely packed as possible. I put a lot of time and care in wrapping the eggs . I will leave you very positive feedback also. Stay safe and God bless! *****
PLEASE NOTE: FRESH eggs are gathered prior to shipment. We gather eggs multiple times per day. The utmost care goes into packing them for safe arrival. HOWEVER, we CANNOT control how the post office handles them, NO REFUNDS are given. WE DO NOT REPLACE BROKEN EGGS! NO RETURNS ACCEPTED! Each box is labeled as Fragile. We cannot guarantee or warranty the delivery of your eggs once they are in the hands of the USPS. Your eggs are shipped Priority 1-3 day and are insured up to $50.00 by the USPS. If your eggs do not arrive on time then it is up to YOU to call the USPS and submit a claim. If you refund through Ebay instead then you are stealing from me as I cannot get any money back. I loose the cost of the eggs and the shipping when you could have handled it more fairly. If this is your intention, please buy elsewhere.
