Schijndelaar Hatching Eggs Available now for summer 2023.
Schijndelaar hatching eggs are shipped directly to your house from Graywhale Farms.
You will receive 6 fertile eggs with every order (1). The hatching eggs that you receive only come from our rare breed chickens at our farm in Sturgeon Bay, Door County.
They come very nicely packaged and are fertile eggs ready for incubation.
Our current fertility rate on hatching eggs is over 75%.
Eggs are collected several times a day and will be fresh when shipped. Estimated delivery dates include seller handling, time, origin zip code, destination zip code, time of acceptance, and receipt of the cleared payment. Eggs are shipped within a couple of days so we can provide you with the freshest eggs possible using USPS. We do our best to pack the eggs securely and safely. We are located in Wisconsin so your eggs will get to you quickly no matter where you are in the continental US.
We cannot guarantee that your eggs will hatch, but we will replace any broken eggs on arrival. Please keep in mind these are live embryos. We use all best practices on our farm and during the packaging process to ensure we have the appropriate amount of hens and roosters for each of our species-specific pens. Graywhale Farms will not refund for a bad hatch.
Schijndelaar — a rare breed indeed
The Schijndelaar is a long-tailed rare breed species. The species began in the Netherlands. The name comes from the city in the Netherlands, Schijnel. Breeds get named in so may ways!
The breed was developed as a cross breed from Leghorns, Araucanas, Brabanconne and Sumatras.
The hens lay the most beautiful colored green and blue eggs and are great temperament. They also have characteristics that include beautiful long tails. They were a standout in our Pet flock so we’ve began breeding this species this year.
The Schijndelaar has a pea comb, a small crest, red earlobes, and small wattles. It’s characterized by its full tail and long saddle feathers, that hang approximately horizontally. The Schijndelaar we have at our Farm is the White Schijndelaar.
From our hatchery to your homestead, backyard and kitchen.
