Eggs received in good time and very well packed.. Thank you
I am so impressed with Appletons. They are so helpful on the phone. The shipping is super fast. The fertile eggs I have bought are huge and 100% fertile. Thanks guys. Keep up the tip top service.
Very good company to deal with In every way. Eggs arrived on time and were well packaged. Very good pricing.
18 fertile eggs ordered 26 days ago, they arrived a couple of days later perfectly packaged & safe ready to put under my 2 Broodies. 24hrs later they were set & my girls did their job. On Thursday evening to my delight, at day 20, I went to check the girls and heard the peeps, then caught sight of 2 fluffy ginger bums. By the next day there were 14 bundles of joy. Thank you so much guys. My girls are enjoying co-parenting the 6 Rhode reds, 5 Araucanas & 3 barred Plymouth Rock that hatched. Beautiful healthy chicks, I’m over the moon. Every purchase from Appleton’s is promptly sent, great quality and meets my expectations, thank you.
I recently brought fertile chicken eggs from you and just wanted to say you provided fantastic service, quick delivery and eggs were packed and labelled very well. Will definitely buy from you again. Big thanks
Over the years we have invested much time and energy in keeping our heritage breeds going so we can supply both hatching eggs, day-old chicks and pullets to our customers. It is very time intensive as requires input all year round - on a daily basis! Looking back, we have been doing this for 14 + years – since our boys were little!
Unfortunately, this has become a costly exercise both time-wise and financially and we are now a family of teenage boys with very busy lives and are finding we can no longer do it all! We have made the decision to scale back and run smaller breeding groups or trios - so reducing hatching egg numbers and availability.
Prior to ordering please email or phone to check availability. If we can supply, we are more than happy to place an order for you.
Hatching eggs will be available from July to December. We send eggs on Mondays and Tuesdays of each week. If you choose to cancel your hatching egg order we do not offer a refund. Please bring your own egg trays or cartons when collecting eggs directly or we have egg cartons for sale. We have a minimum order of 6 eggs. We currently keep the heritage breeds shown below.
If you have received eggs in the post we recommend resting them prior to placing them under the hen.
