There will be some limited opportunities to buy hatching eggs in 2020. I am unable to ship eggs at this time, so any purchased eggs need to be picked up locally (Lillooet, BC). Occasionally I might be able to find transport for eggs to Kamloops or Chilliwack.
I am able to provide some custom hatching in 2020. I can a maximum of 42 eggs in a hatch, and it takes 21 days for the chicks to hatch.
If you are interested in either hatching eggs or chicks, please use the contact page, send a private message on Facebook, or e-mail with your wish list to firstname.lastname@example.org
The following types of eggs are available in 2020:
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.
Laying beautiful blue colored eggs, this breeding pen has a Blue rooster over Blue and Splash hens. Chicks hatched will may be Blue, Black or Splash.
Hatching eggs are $6/egg or $72/dozen
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.
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
Rose Hill Farm Mix
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.
