Rainbow Hatching Eggs: Half Dozen
Can't decide which hatching eggs to get? Let the fates decide for you--the fates in this case being two chicken ladies in Western MA!
Our Rainbow Half Dozen is a surprise assortment of our breeds, based on availability: Black Copper Marans, Self Blue Ameraucana, F1 Olive Eggers, and Gemstone Olive Eggers. Hens can lay dark brown, blue, olive, minty green, even pink! We label all eggs upon collection, so you'll know what's inside. We also aim to give you the greatest variety possible, with what is available, when you place your order.
This assortment is an affordable way to sample our breeds and add a rainbow of hues to your egg basket. It's also an excellent option if you are a teacher hatching for the classroom.
About Our Hatching Eggs
"I ordered hatching eggs from Silver Fox Farm and of the two dozen I received all were fertile and developed - I hatched out a dozen of them - and believe it was only my novice incubator skills that didn't hatch all two dozen. That being said, the 12 who I've been growing out are the most vigorous, foraging, friendly chickens I've ever had. I had hoped to hatch out a Black Copper Marans rooster, and I have two, and at least for the foreseeable future I'm keeping both. The most interesting mixes are the back cross BCM and Olive Eggers - the roosters are astonishingly gorgeous. Maeg was incredibly helpful and I used her incubator instructions as well as brooding instructions. Thank you for providing me with gorgeous chickens. They're amazing." - Amanda
At Silver Fox Farm...
Using a clan mating system, we breed for health, temperament, and the Standard of Perfection.
Our flocks live in spacious coops and runs or tractors, and enjoy access to seasonal pasture or fresh greens.
Unlike many large scale hatcheries that cull male chicks at hatch, we love and value our roosters, and grow all of them out to maturity.
