Hatching eggs for you
We have capacity in our Brinsea incubator to hatch your eggs for you. This option is much cheaper than hiring or buying an incubator, but is does mean that you will miss out on seeing the chicks hatch. You will, however, have the chicks that you wanted and can collect them as day olds to brood at home.
It is best that you bring the eggs to us, but you can post them to us if you want to, or ask your supplier to send them direct to us. For example, if you buy fertile eggs off Ebay you can ask the seller to post them to us, rather than to you. If you are not buying by post, then it is better to bring the eggs to us as there are generally better results from eggs that have not been in the post.
We do insist, however, that you collect the chicks as day olds. We can agree the date of hatch with you so that you are able to collect them on a day to suit you.
The eggs will be marked with your identity and you are welcome to put whatever marks on them you would like as well. A full record of you and the breed of chicken will be kept. The eggs will go in their own row in the incubator and will be in their own hatching pod in the hatcher. The empty egg shells will be kept until the chicks are collected.
We only charge for hatched chicks and it is therfore in our interest, as well as yours, to ensure the best hatch rate possible. We have enjoyed a very good hatch rate with the Brinseas and will continue to do so.
The cost is £3 per hatched chicks. Eggs which do not hatch for whatever reason will not be charged for. Payment is to be made on collection of the chicks. Get in Contact with us to book your eggs in
