Our Turkeys are now laying well and we are shipping fertile eggs.
We will not ship eggs that are more than three days old when they leave our farm, and it is particularly important that You NOT put shipped eggs directly into an incubator upon their arrival. They need 24 hours to allow the yolks to settle and to reach room temperature your incubator should have been turned on and up to temperature (99.5 degrees) when you get the eggs.
Our turkeys are “Osceola Hybrids’ (not wild turkeys). Pictures of our turkeys can be seen on our website <allisonfamilyfarm.com> Our eggs are guaranteed to be fresh and fertile but are not guaranteed to hatch. Turkey eggs are not as easy to hatch as chicken eggs, turkey eggs must be incubated at a maintained 99.5 degrees and 55 to 65% humify for the first twenty-five days in the incubator, then reduce the temperature to 98 degrees and run up the humify to 75% for the final three days. It is particularly important that the temperature be maintained at 99.5 (except the last three days) while hatching as a few degrees higher will kill the embryos. And a few degrees lower the eggs simply will not hatch. Also, your incubator should have a fan in it to ensure that all the eggs get the proper temperature.
Our Osceola Hybrid Turkey eggs sell by the dozen, and we will only ship in increments of one dozen, cost per dozen $120.00 plus shipping (usually less than $20.00 per Doz.). We ship by USPS, UPS, or FedEx the cheapest way. We only ship on Mondays, Tuesdays & sometimes on Wednesdays.
If you wish to purchase eggs send me your complete mailing address & phone number and total number of eggs you want. I will put you on our list and notify you one week before I can ship your eggs, at that time you must pay for the eggs. We accept PayPal, GabPay or your check. We only ship eggs in lots of one dozen.
Our eggs are candled before shipping to confirm fertility, but we do not guarantee that our eggs will hatch. Shipping hatching eggs is risky, not because they are not fertile, but because the delicate membranes in the egg can be damaged during shipping and reduce or destroy the egg’s ability to hatch. Also, they can be exposed to harsh conditions, x-rayed, extreme temperature, very ruff handling & shipping delays, among others.
**NOTE: there is No return or No refund on eggs.
If you should receive our eggs broken, we will replace them, or refund $9.00 for each broken egg, but you need to notified us immediately (the day you receive them) by email, (email@example.com) including a picture showing the damage.
