Fertilized Chicken Eggs

11 posts in this topic

I have 18 breeds of chickens and can supply fertilized eggs to those who live in the Columbia area. All you need is an incubator. If you are interested in hatching some chicks as part of a life cycle lesson, let me know. I can't guarantee any one particular breed, but I can supply a rainbow of differently colored eggs. You can reply here or email me at frankhdgs@gmail.com .

Frank, what kinds of chickens do you have? We have Rhode Island Reds, Golden Comets, and Buff Orpingtons (I think that's right... not sure of the spelling because this is my daughter's 4H project and my husband is the one who helps with that). She won best of show for her Rhode Island Reds last year at the 4H show.

 

Warmly,

Dianna

Frank, wow! Katy would love having the different colored eggs! Our eggs range from a light tan (not white, but very light) to brown. Store-bought white eggs look weird to us now.

 

Do you notice that they taste different? Katy's hens (the ones who won best of show) were sold to a lady who said that the Rhode Island Red's eggs have the best taste. (She had to sell three back as per 4H rules - she didn't want to, though!) I've wondered if anyone else can taste a diffence.

Oh, there is definitely a HUGE difference in taste. They have a richer taste to them. And, depending on breed and diet, some even taste sweet - perfect in desserts. I try to put a rainbow of colors in every carton we sell so that people can see how different / beautiful non-store-bought eggs are. If you ever want to hatch some, or are interested in chicks, let me know. Feel free to send a friend request on Facebook - you can see all 100 chickens (18 breeds), the eggs, the hatching pix & videos, the guinea keets, the goat, and the rest of the menagerie.
