2018 Weekly Hatching Schedule

It takes 21 days to hatch a chicken egg from when incubation starts. I operate a weekly (Friday) loading/hatching schedule. Eggs are loaded in the incubator every Friday pm. On Day 7 & 18 the eggs are candled to check for fertility and healthy embryo development. Not all eggs loaded turn out to be fertile and not all fertile eggs hatch.  After candling, numbers are adjusted below to reflect what is likely to hatch on Day 21. Orders are allocated based on these expected numbers but actual numbers are not known until after the hatch is completed. After the hatch the incubator is emptied, chicks are tallied and placed in a brooder. They are observed for a day to make sure they are healthy and eating/drinking before they are collected. If your order has been successfully filled you will receive a confirmation text/email on Saturday am to confirm collection on Sunday am. In order to fill some orders it is necessary for me to HOLD some chicks back for a week to add to the next hatch. This saves you making 2 trips to collect your entire order.


Please be patient and remember - "don't count your chickens before they hatch"....
