2023 Hatching Plans

 

We are done hatching and sending hatching eggs for 2022. Limited birds will be available as we pick our breeders. 

Note: these hatching plans are subject to the whims and fancies of the chickens, along with the ever changing plans evolving in Heidi's head. Plans can switch at any time due to broody girls, unhappiness with certain combinations, weather, or any number of reasons. We share these for fun, but do not guarantee that these plans will stay constant.  Green Grables produces small numbers of birds and we love projects, not production. Flexibility is the only rule.

Plans are divided by breed and include production time estimate, egg availability, and pen descriptions.

Waiting lists for eggs are all closed. Available birds are listed first on Instagram @greengrables and www.facebook.com/greengrables
