Hatching Eggs for sale

Eggs - Opal x Opal
unavailable until further notice

These eggs come from breeding pens which contain Opal Legbar roosters covering Opal Legbar hens. All chicks hatched from these eggs will be Opal chicks. These eggs are the quickest way to a all Opal Legbar flock. However keep in mind that the lavender gene causes poor feather quality. All lavender based chicken breeds are susceptible to this issue, and Opal Legbars are no exception. We highly recommend, if you are planning to breed your Opal Legbars, to breed back to good quality Cream (or Golden Crele) Legbars every at least every three generations in order to improve feather quality in succeeding generations.

Eggs - "split" x Opal
Limited Availability
Estimated shipping time 2 to 3 weeks

$3.75 each plus shipping

These eggs come from breeding pens which contain "split" roosters covering Opal hens. Half of the chicks that hatch from these eggs will be Opals and half will be "splits". What is a split you ask? A split is a Legbar, either cream or golden crele, that also possesses one lavender gene. An Opal Legbar possesses two copies of the lavender gene. Only with two copies are the beautiful grey and cream colors expresses. With only one copy, a "split" Legbar will look just like a cream or golden crele Legbar. However, "splits" can produce more Opals if paired with another Opal or another "split".

When choosing which eggs are best for your breeding program, it's good to remember how the lavender gene works.

Opal X Opal = 100% Opal

Opal x Cream split to Opal = 50% Opal & 50% split

Cream split to Opal x Cream split to Opal = 25% Opal, 50% split, 25% Cream

Opal x Cream = 100% split

We very much appreciate your business! We’d like to make ordering hatching eggs and day-old chicks a predictable and pleasant experience. In order to facilitate this process and your expectations, please read our terms and conditions prior to placing an order.

Terms and Conditions
All orders are subject to the following terms and conditions. Any purchaser of eggs or chicks from us agrees to these terms and conditions as a prerequisite of ordering. There are no exceptions to these terms and conditions, so please read them carefully and be sure you are willing to abide by them before ordering. If you are unwilling to abide by them without complaint, please do not place an order.

Hatch rate guarantee
Due to the many factors beyond our control, we make no guarantees either express or implied on your hatch rate of eggs. We only guarantee to ship fertile eggs, and that your eggs will arrive unbroken. We continually set eggs and have a good idea what the fertility rate is and will include extra eggs to account for any non fertile eggs you might get. Because we ultimately cannot control nature, or your personal hatching techniques and experience, we make no guarantees that you will hatch any chicks from our hatching eggs.

Minimum order
We guarantee that you will receive the number of chicks ordered alive and healthy. We will refund a prorated purchase price for any chicks that arrive d.o.a., excluding any extra chicks included in your order. Shipping is nonrefundable. You may be required to provide photo proof of any casualties before any refunds are issued. Orders for smaller quantities of chicks may be delayed until more favorable shipping temperatures, or you may receive older chicks, or you may receive extra chicks which may be different breeds or colors than what you ordered.

Farm Tours
We take biosecurity seriously. Farm visits expose our flocks to the potential for inadvertent disease transmission. We simply can't take that risk. We do not allow farm tours or for you to pick up your order at our farm.

Vaccinations and Disease
We do not vaccinate. We believe in breeding for inherit resistance to disease. We believe this cannot be achieved by applying blanket vaccinations indiscriminately. For some diseases, vaccinations have proven more harmful than helpful.

Quarantine
We recommend that you quarantine all birds received from us for at least 30 days so that they can be observed and verified to be free from disease. The recommended quarantine is a precautionary measure. Chicks you ordered from us that showed no signs of disease prior to being integrated with your existing flock does not necessarily mean the problem originated with our chicks. It is very difficult to determine the origin of a disease in a chicken flock. The transmission of disease is a complex process. Even expert pathologists may have difficulty identifying the precise origin of a disease.

Shipping Eggs
Orders for eggs are shipped Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday. Eggs are shipped via Priority Mail via the United States Postal Service (aka USPS). Estimated delivery times are up to three days. However, Priority Mail is not guaranteed by the USPS and delivery times can be longer. We will send you the tracking number when your eggs ship.

Shipping Chicks
Orders for chicks are shipped on Monday or Tuesday, sometimes Wednesday. We ship via USPS Express shipping. Delivery times are generally one or two days; however, the USPS has extended it's guaranteed delivery time to up to four days depending on source and destination zip codes. Our Arrive Alive Guarantee covers any losses in the event of delayed delivery by the USPS. We will cover any losses up to the cost of your order. Shipping is not refundable. If you request, we will ship via USPS Priority mail. Requesting USPS priority voids our arrive alive guarantee.

Timing of Shipment
It is difficult to precisely predict laying rates, fertility rates, and hatch rates. You will be placed on a waiting list when you pay for your order. Orders are shipped in the order in which they are received, unless otherwise requested. Please let us know if you have any blackout dates for which you cannot receive your order. We will try to accommodate your request. We are not a commercial hatchery. Please be patient. We will fill your order as soon as possible. It's all up to hens.

Order Cancellation
You may cancel your order at any time within three (3) days of ordering, provided your order has not already shipped. If you cancel your order after three (3) days for any reason other than our ability to fill your order, you will forfeit 25% of the cost of your order. If we are unable to fulfill your order within a reasonable amount of time, we will give you the option to either continue to wait or you may cancel your order, in which case you will receive 100% refund.

What to expect
You should expect birds that reflect the fundamental attributes of the breed. You should not expect a cosmetically perfect bird. In fact, you should expect to find some defects in virtually every bird you raise. Only a tiny fraction of chickens conform to their breed standard in all respects. We do not represent that every bird we sell is flawless.
