Anticipating the Future: Projecting Egg Counts
At Valley Hatchery, our egg count projections are a result of a comprehensive approach. We factor in breed-specific egg-laying capabilities, draw insights from historical egg production by our flock, consider breed hatch rates, and account for the ever-changing environmental conditions throughout the season. As you browse through our breed offerings, it’s worth noting that availability can fluctuate, especially as we approach hatch dates. Our conservative estimates often lead to us setting more eggs than expected. Furthermore, if a particular hatch is progressing exceptionally well, we happily increase the number of birds available for sale. This means that opportunities to make a purchase arise more frequently than you might think, even if a breed appears sold out or currently unavailable for your desired date. So keep a close watch and be prepared to seize these opportunities to enhance your flock.
