Hatching Eggs

 

Hatching eggs won’t be available again until spring of 2020.

I have a limited supply available, so please send an e-mail regarding the eggs you are interested in and I will try to accommodate that.  But please note that I am not set up to ship eggs at this time.  Local pick-up (Lillooet, BC) is the only option right now.  

Interested in Hatching Eggs?   Use the contact page, send a private message on Facebook, or  e-mail with your wish list to rosehill.senger@gmail.com 

The following types of eggs were available in 2019, and I will post the new opportunities early in 2020:

Barred Rocks

Rose Hill Farm Barred Rocks are being selected for dual purpose performance as meat birds and winter-hardy egg layers.  This group of hens has produced eggs all winter, without any extra heat or light in their pens.  Friendly and resourceful, Barred Rocks are an excellent addition to any flock.

Hatching eggs are $5/egg and $60/dozen.

Silver Americanas

Laying light blue or green eggs, this breeding pen has a Silver Americana rooster over a mix of silver, brown, black and white colored hens.    Eggs are similar to those pictured above.

Hatching eggs are $5/egg or $60/dozen.

 

Olive Eggers

Hens that lay olive eggs are bred by crossing blue and brown types of chickens.  You can get light olive eggers by crossing Americanas to Barred Rocks, and dark olive eggers by crossing Americanas and Marans.  The resulting pullets of these crosses lay olive colored eggs, even though the egg they hatched from may be blue, light brown or dark brown.

Olive-eggers are $5/egg for light olives and $6/egg for dark olives, or $66/mixed dozen

A mix of available hatching eggs  can be provided for $66/dozen.  The combination of eggs will be dependent on what is currently available.

Note that purebred Marans eggs are not currently available.
