Many of our breeding birds are proven exhibition birds that conform well to the breed standards, however some birds may not, so please if you are unsure have a look at the birds in the breeding pens before ordering.We are happy to take extra photos for you if you need further detail.

We are happy to send mixed dozens or a mystery assortment.

Our pure breed chicken eggs are $70-$150 per dozen depend on breeds, unless otherwise stated, plus Express Postage of $30 anywhere in Australia or we can fit 2 dozen large breed or 3 dozen bantam eggs,  in a larger box with the postage being $40.

All eggs are wrapped individually and packed carefully in poly fibre, duck eggs are packed with an added damp cloth to keep the humidity levels up a bit.

Posting days are Monday and Tuesday, to allow plenty of time for arrival before the weekend.


POSTING FERTILE EGGS

Fertile eggs do need to be protected from impact during posting, which will cause the air sac to be dislodged or ruptured, this is probably one of the most important factors to consider.  Often, using eggs cartons, although it seems the logical choice, is not always the best one.  After many attempts at posting eggs to family members across the state, using all different methods of packaging. I have found a method of packing eggs that ensures they will arrive to you in the best possible condition for hatching.  The packing method I use is both time consuming and expensive but if you are buying my fertile eggs, then you deserve to buy eggs that have a high chance of arriving alive and hatching.

Express Posting eggs is the best method to use.  They do not travel with other parcels heavier than 5kg. (less chance of impact) The eggs travel in the cool of the night for next day delivery to you, so it is of no great concern to post eggs on hot days. (within reason)

Eggs travelling by air are not subject to freezing temperatures in the cargo holds. Most domestic aircraft holds are heated to 16-22C through bypass flow from the engines.

When you receive your eggs, please unpack them straight away and store them in a clean egg carton pointy end down. Rest your eggs for 24 hours before incubating, this gives the contents a chance to settle and stabilize after their journey.
