2022 Hatching Plans

 Note: these 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.  2022 is the year of projects, not production. Flexibility is the only rule.

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

Waiting list for eggs is OPEN. Watermaals, Ameraucana Bantams, Belgian d'Uccles!
