Description

We receive a 95% hatch rate on all of our hatching eggs here at the farm when we use our incubators. We cannot guarantee the hatch rate of shipped eggs because of postal handling as well as everyones individual hatching practices. We can guarantee that they will arrive intact. 🙂 

Please note: these eggs are a first generation cross meaning that the eggs you receive will be blue, never fear – the offspring that will hatch out of the eggs will be carrying the sage green color gene.

We can fit up to 24 eggs into a shipping box for a flat rate of $30. For orders over 24 eggs we will charge for a second shipping box.

Our Sage Eggers are one of our most versatile groups we work with on the farm.

They are one of our signature breeds that we brought to market in 2015 and they will continue to offer them for years to come because they are fantastic layers.

We love our sage eggers for the wide range of egg colors and speckling patterns they can produce. True workhorses of the flock, they produce 6-7 eggs a week in spring and continue to lay strong through the summer and fall. Predator wise and intelligent, these birds know their way around the barnyard and are excellent foragers.

These beauties lay green eggs that have anything from gentle white speckling over top to dramatic brown spots – every hen is unique in her laying pattern and will continue to lay in that pattern throughout her life.

Our sage eggers will produce an egg that is a lighter shade than a typical olive egger, their eggs will help you expand the rainbow in your daily egg collecting basket.

The roosters are stunning and cause everyone to stop and ask what breed they are. Hens have lovely sweet personalities and the roosters are excellent with the hens. Sage eggers are a medium framed bird that will produce a regular sized egg. Our sage eggers look similar to our azure eggers in feathering. How you will know you have a Sage Egger hen is by the rusty red undertones in the breast feathers. Azure eggers will have a lighter colored chest and of course will be laying blueish eggs while our sage eggers will be laying greens.
