Black Copper Marans: $50/dozen, $85 for 2 dozen (Note: All orders of black copper only eggs come from our black copper breeding program. Blacks from our blue breeding pen are not used in this program. Blacks bred from blue can lead to a dilution of the black, resulting in a dulling of the black color and loss of sheen. If you intend on showing your black coppers, you can rest assured that our blacks in this program are only bred from black to black matings)
Black/Blue/Splash Copper Marans (Available in December, 2018): $50/dozen, $85/ 2 dozen (Note: Eggs from this pen come from a blue rooster over blue hens. Each egg has a 50% chance of hatching blue, 25% chance of hatching black, 25% chance of hatching splash). These hatching eggs will be great for the person who wants the dark eggs of the black coppers, but a little color variety in their flock. Our blue copper eggs are just as dark as the blacks'
Easter Egger: $20/dozen, $35 for 2 dozen. Our Easter Eggers come in a variety of patterns, mostly based on orange, red, and black. Most hens lay a pretty mint green egg, though some will lay more bluish tones and every once in a while we will get the rare hen that lays pink. Since they are a hybrid, these eggs have extremely high hatch rates, often hatching 100% at home
$30 packaging and shipping fee/order
Shipping fertile eggs is risky, and no guarantees are made that any will hatch. Fertility is always closely monitored at the farm, and if we aren't having high fertility rates, we won't ship eggs. Incubation practices vary from person to person, and we have no way of knowing how the eggs are handled once they leave our care. Eggs are collected daily, dates are marked, and they will be shipped as quickly as possible once ordered. Each egg is individually wrapped in bubble wrap, then packed in pine shavings to make transit as safe as possible. All eggs are sent 2 day priority mail through the USPS. NPIP movement forms are available to be shipped in paper form with the eggs, or can be emailed in PDF format
In the Spring and Summer, started birds will be available for purchase at the farm. We are conveniently located 5 minutes from Interstate 85 and 10 minutes from Interstate 26.

Started pullets 6-12 weeks old are $15 each. Pullets 4 months to point of lay are $25 each Choice cockerels are $15 each
