Do you want young birds from your own eggs ?

1500 egg incubator, You can see one tray is filled with peafowl eggsWe are happy to incubate your eggs using our Egg Incubation Service. We provide a full hatching service. We will incubate your eggs in one of our 3  A&B or 2 Bristol setters all forced air. Then move them to either our Bristol or Curfew forced air hatchers for the last stage of incubation. We candle eggs at 10 days depending on shell colour. We can keep you informed of progress throughout incubation and provide you with updates of your eggs fertility rates and chick count on hatching so you can make adequate room the your new arrivals. Or move that cock that just isn’t doing the job with his hens.

We are able to provide guidance in egg selection and storage methods for many breeds of poultry, game or waterfowl if this is new to you.

Fee Schedule for Incubation/Hatch Service

We charge a setting fee to set any eggs regardless if they hatch or not.

The setting fee depends on the incubation time of the egg and by the breed.

For Chicken, and common pheasant eggs that hatch at 21 days have a setting fee of 40p per egg There is no minimum on eggs set, but a charge of £5 for less than 12 eggs.

Small chicken eggs 40p

Standard and large chicken eggs 40p

Pheasant eggs 40p

Partridge eggs 40p

Quail eggs 35p

Peafowl eggs a setting fee of £1.50 per egg

Large demestic geese and muscovy duck eggs a setting fee of 1p per egg

Ornamental geese eggs a setting fee of £1.50 per egg

Large demestic duck eggs a setting fee of 30p per egg

Ornamental duck eggs a setting fee of 28p per egg

Rare pheasants that include Tragopans, Argus, Eared Pheasants ect, you must contact before setting.

Parrot eggs: You must contact for price on egg setting fees. We will gladly incubate 1 egg if need be.

All fees above include space, labor, time for service provided. A generator is on site in the event we loose power. The eggs are provided an optimum condition for hatching, but as mother nature also charges taxes, hatch rates are not guaranteed. Eggs may show fertility for the 1st 2 weeks, and then suddenly die. Some eggs may even hatch and then die within the 1st 24 hours.

We give our hatch rates at over 90%. This is for eggs that are fertile and not for the total number of eggs that are first set (placed in incubator)

All eggs are set so they’ll be ready for pickup on a Tuesday.

      We have sent eggs to The Gambia in the past. They arrived in good order but did not go on to hatch when incubated. This may of been down to the chicken hatchery as they had never incubated peafowl eggs before and we know that setters and hatchers setup to hatch chicken eggs will not give the best results when hatching peafowl eggs.

    Right so I’m planning on raising chickens, I’m 80% finished building my coop. Whats the difference between small chicken eggs and reg? (Except it’s bigger 😉 ). Also how should I incubate the eggs.
    Regards,
    Charles
