The Bohuslän-Dal's Svarthöna stands out with its striking black coloration that goes beyond feathers, encompassing the comb, wattle, beak, legs, and even the skin. It's as if they're adorned in an elegant, all-black ensemble. The hens flaunt a typically smooth feather structure, although you might come across some with a touch of fluffiness.
Size-wise, these hens are charmingly petite. The females tip the scales at approximately 2.2 to 3.3 pounds, while the roosters are slightly larger, weighing between 3.3 to 4.4 pounds. Adding to their allure, you might occasionally spot a white individual among them. Their combs and wattles are not just black; they can also display a beautiful reddish-purple shade, enhancing their unique appeal. Hens lay about 150 eggs/year.
At Cluck It All Farms, we're all about bringing the freshest dozen eggs straight to your doorstep! We've got the timing down to a science, shipping early in the week to avoid any weekend delays at the post office. Plus, we pack each egg like it's a precious treasure to ensure they make the journey to you safe and sound.
Now, we often like to add a few extra eggs to your order when we can. But you know how it is with Mother Hen – sometimes she has her own agenda, so extra eggs are a happy bonus, not a guarantee.
We're not just any farm – we're a proud participant in the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP), and our flocks are avian influenza (A/I) clean. Our NPIP certification, under the vigilant care of Tina Hines, boasts the participant number 31-1508.
Here's a little heads-up: shipping hatching eggs is a bit like rolling the dice. We do our best to pack them for a safe trip, but we can't make promises about the condition of the embryos when they arrive. Detached air cells can happen, and so, a 100% hatch rate isn't something we can guarantee. But don't worry, especially if you're new to hatching eggs – we've got plenty of guidance and are always here to help with your queries.
Our flocks are a bit like celebrities – no public appearances for their health and safety. But we love sharing their world with you through photos and video chats! And if you're nearby and prefer to pick up your eggs, let's arrange a meet-up at an off-site location. It's all part of the Cluck It All experience!
*Disclaimer: Hatching eggs and the success of hatching are influenced by various factors beyond our control, such as incubation conditions, handling during shipment, and individual hatchery practices. While we strive to provide the best hatching eggs possible, we cannot guarantee specific hatch rates or the outcome of your hatching experience.
