Hatching Eggs Additional Info.
1. No guarantees or refunds on shipped eggs due to shipping trauma, unknown incubation events and verification difficulties. People generally get the same results that I get. Started chicks may be better with repeated unsuccessful incubation cycles as shipping trauma itself can cause 100% non-hatch cycle events.
2. Hatching eggs are from two strains of Araucana type chickens. The black feathered hybrid show strain and my 45 year strain of Ketros and Kollenkas producing Araucana types. Each strain has value and each strain is kept pure for genetic heredity identification.

Birds For Sale
Due to the extreme summer temperatures in Redding, California (over 100 degrees!), there may be shipping delay considerations. Private viewing and sales by appointment only, and applies to sold birds being picked up after purchase at this time. Maintaining bio secure environmental goals of disease prevention is a primary concern. I do not vaccinate or medicate adult birds. Although chicks are fed medicated purina chick starter until after they are on the ground to promote cocci soil bacteria immunity development.
