USPS PRIORITY MAIL
WE RECOMMEND WITH THE HOT WEATHER; YOU PICK UP YOUR EGGS AT THE POST OFFICE. PLEASE NOTE IF YOU'D LIKE THEM HELD TO INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER SO THEY CAN CALL YOU WHEN THEY ARRIVE.
Eggs are collected daily and are stored properly to ensure freshness and improve viability. Fertilized eggs will be shipped no more than three days after they're laid and will arrive within 2-3 days of shipping. Each shipment comes with a $50 insurance policy through the USPS. Should your package be delayed or lost, you must file a claim within 30 days with the USPS. We guarantee your eggs will arrive intact and ready for incubation; however, we cannot guarantee your hatch rate. There are many factors in the shipping of fertile eggs that are just simply out of our control. As stated above, you will receive intact hatchings eggs, but it is up to you to incubate them properly.
*Extras are always available, and we'd be happy to add to your order*
*We can ship up to two dozen for the original $15 USPS Priority mail shipping*
How did they get their name?
Turns out, the unusual name comes from the hen’s ability to lay an incredible amount of eggs. Gold Deathlayer hens will lay just about an egg a day until she dies. This is remarkable considering, in most chicken breeds, a good laying hen will lay eggs consistently for about 3 to 4 years. After that, she will lay fewer eggs yearly until they stop laying entirely.
The average lifespan of a chicken is about 7-10 years, and Deathlayers will provide eggs consistently well into her ripe old age. Plentiful and long-producing, they lay a white, medium size egg. Please keep in mind that the Gold Deathlayer does not do well in confined spaces but thrives in a free-range environment. They tend to be somewhat of a nervous breed. They are less domesticated and therefore need more interaction at a young age to become socialized with humans. This does, however, help them escape from numerous predators that hunt small animals.
