Besides ducklings and chicks, we also sell duck hatching eggs for those of you that want to incubate and hatch your own ducklings at home or at school. If your goal is only to get ducklings, it is better to order the ducklings. If you want your class or your children to experience the incubation and hatching experience, we can supply you the eggs.
Our hatching eggs are sent by priority mail and should be to you within 3-4 days after that breed hatching date. All eggs sent were laid the day of shipping or the day before.
They should be set within seven days of our shipping them. The ideal holding temperature before setting is 60 degrees. As incubation times vary due to the incubator temperature, we recommend placing the eggs in the incubator during the middle of the week if you are hatching these in a classroom. This way you are sure they will be hatching during the week and not over the weekend. Typically, 80% of the eggs you buy are fertile.
We cannot guarantee that all the fertile eggs will hatch. That is entirely dependent on the incubator and we have no control over the quality or care of the incubator.
We guarantee the eggs to be true to breed variety and to arrive in good condition. However, we do not guarantee hatchability due to conditions beyond our control during shipment, and hatching equipment or other methods used.
We will include incubation instructions with each set of pekin hatching eggs. It is important, however, to make sure your incubator is working and able to maintain a stable temperature before you order your eggs.
