Black Araucana Hatching Eggs (LF)
The Araucana chicken is a species of domestic fowl from Chile; its name even derives from the Araucanía region! It lays gorgeous blue-shelled eggs and is one of the very few breeds that do so. Araucana's are distinguished from other poultry with their ear tufts and rumpless behinds and are one of the rarest breeds of chicken.
The first 18 days are spent incubating, and days 19, 20, and 21 are spent hatching - chicks may even arrive as early as day 18 and as late as day 24.
The eggs need to be kept at 99.5 degrees, with 40 to 50 percent humidity for the first 18 days and 65 to 75 percent humidity for the final days before hatching.
If you don't have an automatic egg turner, the eggs need to be hand rotated thrice daily, but get an automatic egg turner and be amazed at the ease with which you hatch your eggs!
