What says more fun than some Rainbow Mix Eggs! Speckles on the chicken, speckles on the eggs, a blue egg layer from a breed not known for that.... it's fun to mix it up!
This is our favorite choice. We love variety, and this is a fun way to get some new colorful layers in your backyard flock.
The pictures are a representation of what the farm produces and any combination of those colors can be sent in any quantity. We ship up 2-3 dozen eggs of this assortment per week during Spring-Fall. Typically your eggs will not ship immediately. When your order is completed, your place in line is reserved immediately.
We're blessed to have over 20 different breeds in our Colorful Rainbow mix and we rotate our roosters regularly so you have fun mixes to enjoy!

You will not receive the exact copy of the picture, it is accurate of the colors we have, produce and could receive.
All hatching eggs orders are shipped in custom foam shippers. We have egg-cellent fertility rates on the farm (ask our current farm fertility rates anytime).
This was my first time ordering out of state hatching eggs. AZ chickens provided amazing customer service and I received all my beautiful eggs in perfect condition. I would recommend them to anyone looking for hatching eggs!
Amazing eggs and amazing customer service! They worked with me so well and I will definitely be ordering from them again!!
We ordered 12 eggs, were sent 13, and incubated 12 in our incubator and sent one off to a friend. On day 18, earlier than expected, 2 hatched. We were so excited! Later that day a third hatched. Incredible! We’d been told to leave them in the incubator for 24 hours, so we adhered to that exactly. Close to the 24 hours mark, a 4th began to hatch. We were so excited, filming every change as it happened. When the chick finally emerged, it’s intestines were leaking out from its stomach area… it did not look comfortable or content… we were worried about opening the incubator since we didn’t want to impair the humidity or temperature for the remaining 8 eggs. Within 12 hours, the chick with gastroschesis passed away, and we hadn’t seen any other signs of life from the remaining eggs. We moved the 3 healthy chicks to the brooder, continued to monitor the rest, and nothing happened for days. We are disappointed that we had less than 25% hatch for us, after doing everything exactly as explained. We paid over $75 for the 12 eggs, and we ended up with 3 chicks. Still not ever sure if they’re hens or roosters. Called AZ Chickens and were told that it is what it is, not guarantees with eggs, and we could purchase hatched chicks for $6 each. I’m annoyed that they’re charging such a high premium on sub-standard eggs, when I now know I can get fertilized eggs for much less (or free) from local people. Don’t waste your time with AZ Chickens. You can do better with networking through Facebook and making a few new friends. I’m much happier with my eggs from a local mama, and have had successful hatching over 75%!
Thank you for the feedback and we appreciate you being willing to share your experience. Hatching for the first time is certainly an education and adding the risks with shipped eggs there is a lot of factors involved. I'm glad we talked and during our hour long conversation it seemed a lot was done right from everything you described and some improvements were discussed of what could be done for future hatches as well. Including adding the GoVe (hydrogemeter) to have a 2nd device to help compare your temperature and humidity to what your incubator says.
Having early hatches as you experienced can happen with the Rainbow eggs due to some of the breeds in that flock do lay smaller eggs. Having chicks hatch on day 19, this also gives information about your hatch. Having a high temperature is called fast hatching. Meaning a higher temp they hatch sooner than the default 21 days for chickens. A side effect of fast hatching or having too high of temperature is intestinal issues, major chick deformities and can cause shrink wrapped chicks (can't get out of the eggs fast enough and they get shrinkwrapped in the egg). All things we discussed in our conversation to help for your next hatching experience and sounds like you have #2 hatch already in the incubator.
Seeing the experience of this hatch, the option of sending more eggs was not a good option or risk worth exploring after this first experience. Also sending free chicks and free shipping as what was asked for is not a business practice we offer for mediocre hatch results as it would be a complete loss. Ex: Of the $75 paid for eggs and shipping, $24 of that is just the shipping cost. Sending chicks would cost $35 to ship so this would be $60 of the $75 before any chicks were added. 25% off the same breed of chicks and pay for shipping was offered but declined. At times we have to accept responsibility of our outcome and learn from it for next time. I believe our phone call definitely will help you for future hatches. Hatching eggs is a learned skill and takes experience using your incubator, understanding how to hatch and what factors can cause the hatch to go awry. There is no book that can teach all the hatching factors just experience in doing.
We're glad that your 2nd hatch is going well and that you were able to network with local individuals for eggs you could pickup. We often support our local chicken community especially when we do not have particular breeds, we direct those customers to the local Facebook groups as it is a great option to support our fellow local chicken keepers. The difference with AzChickens is we are tested for diseases each month and twice per year with our veterinarian and the state. This means we continually check that we breed happy, healthy, disease free birds. Chickens do hide sickness very well and many diseases can only be tested for. Additionally AzChickens breeds for heat harty birds. Chickens from a hatchery being bred from a backyard enthusiast do not get pushed to extreme temperatures and often many are unfortunately lost in the summertime because of our heat. A rule we breed by: We don't breed a hen until they're a year old which means they have survived an entire summer heat, proving heat hartiness. That is the confidence and differences in partnering with AzChickens for your flock. We wish you the very best on your flock and hope you enjoy all the babies! God Bless!
all eggs arrived in gr8 shape. Excellent packaging. They rested for 24 hours and are now in the nurture right 360. I thought I was ordering "Purebred" birds and later read they were with a group of 5 different bred roosters. But the end result will be "Rainbow" eggs which is what this gay man was looking for. Many hugs from Eloy AZ and very happy. Will order more when these hatch!
I got my order a month earlier then expected. Which is great I really enjoyed ordering from AZ chickens
