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.

For more information our policies, please review our Terms.

    We got 6 colorful egg basket eggs for our broody silkie to hatch out. She successfully hatched 3/6 eggs under less than ideal conditions, which is great for her first try hatching. The eggs all arrived in great condition and the eggs that hatched gave a great variety of adorable healthy chicks. Thanks so much, our kids are thrilled to have baby chicks this spring.

    I am thrilled with the hatch rate for your eggs. I had seven of the eight hatch successfully with beautiful healthy chicks. This is a testament to the quality of your fertilized eggs and the care you take packaging them for shipping. I will definitely purchase more fertilized eggs from Better with Thyme in the future. You are simply outstanding!!
