Terms and Conditions for the purchase of Hatching eggs:

We do hatches of all our poultry throughout the year to test fertility rates, if fertility is not good from a particular group, we will not offer those eggs for sale. While we do our best to supply fresh eggs from healthy stock and package them with the utmost care, we cannot guarantee a successful hatch at your end. This is due to the fact that there are many variables when hatching eggs, such as inexperience, faulty incubators, rough handling, amongst many others, that can affect hatch rates. Therefore, we are no longer responsible once the eggs have been picked up or posted, and do not offer refunds.

We will not post the eggs until payment has been cleared, so please be prompt.

Your eggs may arrive with a bit of dirt on them, this is because we do not wash hatching eggs as it can make the eggs susceptible to contamination and harmful bacteria due to the outer protective layer having been damaged, which will negatively affect the development of the chick.

Happy hatching!
