(4 customer reviews)

$20.00$75.00

Bresse are our family’s favorite table breed, ready for processing by 16 weeks of age. Bresse hatching eggs typically ship within 2 weeks during peak hatching season (March through June).

SKU: HATCH-B Category: Tag:

Bresse chickens are table birds that give the most delicious meat (and we’ve found they are also fine producers of large tinted eggs). While searching for a meat breed that we could produce on farm, without relying on buying chicks we discovered the Bresse.

We purchased our original birds from Greenfire Farms, and this is how they describe Bresse: “This remarkable table breed is considered a national treasure in its native France. Reputed to be the best-tasting chicken in the world, a roasted Bresse can cost hundreds of dollars at a Parisian restaurant.”

Bresse are patriotic in their coloring, with bright red combs and wattles, white feathers and blue legs. Hens lay over 200 large eggs per year with a tinted shell.

Shipping dates are reflected on your order and can be viewed on your My Account page. Your order will list one of the following:

“Pre-order Shipping Date”

If your order shipping date was agreed upon prior to your order being placed, your order has guaranteed priority for this ship date. We are NOT currently offering pre-order shipping dates.

“Estimated Shipping Date”

Based on the orders we have received and how many eggs we anticipate, this is the date we expect to ship your order. If you placed your order before hatching egg season has begun, this will be blank until two weeks before the season starts, typically the first week in March. If you placed your order during hatching egg season, this may be blank for up to a week after you have submitted your order. We ship first come first served for each breed and will update our estimated dates after we finish shipping orders for the week. The estimated shipping date may change depending on how many eggs our hens provide and we will update your date if needed.

If you have not yet placed an order, please read this important message

Please do not place an order with us if you are not prepared to wait to receive your hatching eggs. While we do try to fill orders as quickly as possible, we are a small family farm focused on producing high quality chickens and hatching eggs. We are NOT a hatchery that will ship your order out the day it is received.

We only open up orders for as many hatching eggs as we expect to be able to fill about one month out. Once we have received about a month worth of orders, the hatching eggs will be listed as out of stock until we make progress on filling those orders. You can add your name to the waiting list on the product page if you would like to be notified when they are availble for ordering again. There is no obligation to buy if you’re on the waiting list.

    American Bresse Chicks

    Hello Sarah and Peter,

    Just wanted to tell you both how pleased I am with my order of White American Bresse hatching eggs I had received from you. From the stellar packaging with no damages to any of the eggs, to the wonderful instruction link as to what to do when you receive your eggs, down to the actual hatching itself. Of the 6 eggs I had ordered 4 beautiful, healthy chicks emerged :~)
    This is the first time I had ordered hatching eggs online and only my second time incubating eggs.
    Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

    I ordered a dozen American Bresse hatching eggs. The eggs arrived well packaged. There was only very minor detachment of the air cells, much less than I had expected for shipped eggs. I put them pointy-end down in the incubator for the first 7 days with no turning, and after the first week, all the air cells were stable. All 12 eggs were fertilized. I had 9 make it to lockdown, and I hatched 5 chicks. They are doing very well.

    I ordered a dozen American Bresse hatching eggs. The eggs arrived well packaged. There was only very minor detachment of the air cells, much less than I had expected for shipped eggs. I put them blunt-end down in the incubator for the first 7 days with no turning, and after the first week, all the air cells were stable. All 12 eggs were fertilized. I had 9 make it to lockdown, and I hatched 5 chicks. They are doing very well.

    Our hatch went pretty good. We ended up with 7 of 10 hatching. This was my first mail order hatching eggs experience. The chicks that made it out are healthy and super cute. And just in time for Easter. Thank you guys for your commitment to growing! I can’t wait to try these American Bresse out for duel purpose birds.

Q: Just got eggs today so excited! These are hard to tell pointed end from round end. So quick question is the stamp that is on them considered top side up? Thanks

A: Good question! Bresse eggs are less pointy than all the other breeds we’ve raised. Yes, I marked the end I thought was the round end and that should be up!
