Hatching egg Guide
Can I pick up my hatching egg order or chicks from your farm?
Pick up is no longer available for Eggs. The farm has switched over to hatching egg services only and will no longer be supplying chicks.
What methods do you use to ship hatching eggs? 
The farm utilizes Canada Post and purolator to ship hatching eggs. Pricing  can be found at check out prior to purchase. Enter your shipping information and select your shipping method. 

Hatching eggs are in my incubator and some I received are not fertile. 
Eggs that show no development does not necessarily mean they are not fertile. Your eggs may have all been fertile.  Just because an egg doesn't hatch or develop doesn't mean it wasn't fertile. Not all eggs start growing due to many factors. This is all part of the hatching egg experience.  Especially with shipped eggs, no development is often just an issue with handling during shipping.  Fresh, fertile eggs that have never shipped hatch at an average rate of 80% or so. If they are shipped, that rate May drop to an average of 50%, even when handled carefully! BBF does not guarantee a hatch rate just the same as you cannot when hatching your own eggs. These percentages are an average and also not guaranteed. Some incubations will have a better outcome and some will not. If you incubate often, you will sometimes have a great hatch rate and other times, you simply will not. 

My eggs arrived in the mail, can I put them straight into the incubator? 
 Hatching eggs should be candled gently with clean hands, Toss any cracked eggs. Let rest pointy side down for 12-24 hours  prior to incubation. Depending on the shape of the air cells. Extra attention may be required. You can check out the video under the vlog section. 

My eggs have not arrived in the mail and the tracking is not showing further updates. Will they be too old once I get them? Where are my eggs? Should I still incubate, can you send me new ones?
be patient. tracking is not always updated in a timely manner. Eggs are sent fresh and this is why it is important to choose the fastest shipping. Selecting slow options is customer choice but can create fertility issues.   Continue to incubate them. The farm Does not replace or refund late eggs. Once the eggs leave the farm, it is at customers risk.
Do I receive a tracking number?
Yes,a tracking number is emailed to you on Sunday or Mondays. Shipments are shipped Mondays or Tuesday.  Often the tracking emails and responses from the farm end up in the junk folders. Please check this folder on a desktop computer for best results. 
My shipping is late, can I get a refund on the late shipping?
Often many confuse the tracking number created as a shipping day, this is not the case. The day the package is shipped is also not considered a shipping day.  If shipped Monday, 3 day shipping arrival would be thurdsay. Add another day if there is a holiday. Add more days for bad weather. None of these issues are in the carriers control and they do not refund for this.  If your parcel Has not arrived and is late, please be patient. Delays Can happen in the mail.  This is out of the farms control. The farm does not refund or replace late eggs regardless of the issue. 

I want to order chicken eggs and quail eggs. Can you ship them in one shipment? 
Yes, it works best from the available now section. If you order multiple breeds from the preorder, please expect to have back up breeds in mind.


Why is my preorder taking so long to be processed? When can I expect it?
