Welcome to Featherbaby Farm
About the farm...
Featherbaby Farm was born out of my chicken addiction. It all started as a casual hobby, but quickly turned into a passion. I love all breeds, colors, and sizes. I have been raising chickens for over 15 years. Featherbaby Farm is a small farm, not a commercial type hatchery. All my birds have names and are my loved and spoiled pets. I have small hatches focused on the quality of the breed and improving egg color. I am NPIP certified and love to share my babies. I do this because I love it.
Currently, my available breeds are Black Copper Marans, Cream Legbars, White Frost Legbars, Orpingtons, Large Fowl Cochins (frizzle and smooth), Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, Olives/Sage eggers, Langshans, Silkies, Satins and Showgirls (frizzle and smooth) and Seramas (frizzle, smooth, and silkied).
Hatching At Home
Have you always wanted to hatch your own chicks but not had the equipment or knowledge?
Now you can...
Your family or school group can experience the magic of watching chicks emerge into the world. In our four-week Hatching At Home program, you'll get an instructional guide, curriculum, and everything else you need to incubate, hatch, and care for chicks until they are a week old. Then you can return your chicks to the farm - or keep them for your backyard coop!
BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER WITH FEATHERBABY FARM :
If you place an order, I assume you have read and agree with the following:
If you place an order for eggs or chicks, I will take payment to collect your egg order or to hold your chicks. This payment is NON REFUNDABLE. I cannot hold chicks more than a couple days unless otherwise discussed and agreed upon with an additional brooding fee (if space allows).
I accept Venmo, Zelle, FB pay, PayPal, and Cash App. If you use PayPal or Venmo, please send “trusted source” so there are no added fees. If you wish to send PayPal or Venmo “goods and services” please add an additional $5 to your total to cover the fees.
I am an NPIP member. I package eggs with the utmost care using foam shippers and bubble wrap, with an excellent record of eggs arriving unbroken. Shipping can be hard on eggs. There are many factors that can cause an egg to not develop. Even if the eggs and box arrive in good condition, shipped eggs are always a gamble. I test fertility weekly on my farm and only send fresh eggs. Once I collect fresh eggs, pack them carefully, and drop them at the post office, they are out of my control. I cannot refund for broken, late, or damaged packages. I do send all eggs with up to $50 insurance that allows YOU to file an online claim with USPS if need be. Make sure to take photos of the damage to file a successful claim. If you would like to pay extra to insure your package for more, I am happy to accommodate. Just let me know how much extra insurance you want and I’ll give you an updated shipping quote. My standard shipping price for a dozen eggs is $20.
I work hard on selective breeding to produce high quality, good tempered, beautiful birds. Genetics are complicated and recessive genes can show up at anytime. For this reason, I want to point out that you may get an odd egg or chick. For example, I do not breed any straight comb silkies or BLRW, but you may hatch one. You may get an unexpected color chick, or a chick with pigment gaps, leakage, etc. There is no such thing as show quality chicks or hatching eggs. Even if you breed only show quality parent birds, or only hatch the darkest eggs, there is no guarantee the offspring will be show quality or produce that color egg. This is expected even in the best of breeding programs. If you are not ok with this please do not place an order.
Please take some time to learn about hatching and caring for chicks before you jump in. The internet has a wealth of information to get you started. Incubating can be tricky and some breeds are more fragile and require special attention. Please do your research first. I want everyone to have a successful hatch and be happy with their Featherbabies.
If you are unsure or are in need of step-by-step guides and the equipment required to incubate, hatch and care for your chicks then please check out HatchingAtHome.
I am always available for help and guidance, but please do some research first. If you are still unsure please don’t hesitate to contact me.
