Welcome to our Home Flock Pullets (Hens)
Hours at the Farm
Monday through Friday 10 am – 4 pm,
Saturday By Appointment
The Farm also makes deliveries by appointments; this can include several people working together with delivery to one location or it can be to a certain area, such as the Muleshoe Livestock Yard.
Featuring mainly Large Brown Eggs (not graded as Speckled Sussex do have medium eggs, Sex Link often have Jumbo sized eggs, and young pullets will have smaller eggs than when the pullets become hens producing a larger egg.)
A small flock is maintained of from 40 to 60 hens. These have Speckled Sussex, Buff and Barred Plymouth Rocks, Brown Sex-Link and a few Lavender Orpingtons.
There is a small breeding flock of 3 hens, 3 young pullets (2021) and 1 cockrell, (2021) future rooster, Speckled Sussex for fertilized eggs and rarely chicks, to be sold locally, available in 2020. This Heritage breed has shown to be good egg producers, maximizing on feed consumption to laying eggs ratio, long lived, plus some are good “setters” as well as laying in cold weather.
Plymouth Rocks, both the Buff and the Barred Rock, with a few Brown Sex-Link Pullets (hens) are the majority of the laying flock. These breeds also have size so they do make a meat bird for the table as well.

Gathered daily, sorted, placed tip end down in cartons, one dozen size or 18 count, and refrigerated at time of collection. Call or email for carton size desired. As State of Texas has very stringent requirements regarding the sale of graded eggs, your carton may have Large, Extra Large or even the smaller size of the Speckled Sussex. However, the quality and taste are all the same regardless of size! Eggs are not graded by size, any and all sizes can be in a carton. Flock fed the best of laver mash, currently protein is at 20% and calcium at 5 to 6% as a part of the daily diet with corn, wheat, oats, very small amount of flaxseed, oyster shell for the calcium, Canola oil, other foods such as ground black eyed peas, and usually collection of seeds, sunflower or what is available locally, mixed nightly for the hens. It is about as close to “Organic” as can be without dotting the “i’s” and crossing the “t”s associated with Organic. No hormones or anything not natural is added in their diet.
These are happy birds. Please call ahead with your orders. Email, please for phone number. Spammers have made this a necessity. Delivery points are being considered for 2020 with the Farm arranging to meet you within a reasonable radius of the farm location. The Farm Market on Highway 54 going to Spade, Texas will also have farm eggs for sale. Muleshoe Livestock Auction, Muleshoe, on Saturdays is also being considered.
FOR THOSE WHO DESIRE HATCHING EGGS
Fertile Hatching Eggs, Shipping Policies and Guarantees
Attention: When ordering hatching eggs you assume full responsibility, there will not be any refund on eggs! Eggs are a risk!
Under no or any circumstances will Dhabi Farm guarantee any or all of hatching eggs picked up at the Farm will hatch. THE FARM FOLLOWS THIS POLICY FOR HATCHING EGGS PICKED UP AT THE FARM! THERE WILL BE NO SHIPPING OF EGGS, ONLY LOCAL PICKUP.
For locals, the Farm can safely fit 12 eggs per box. Each egg is individually wrapped first in a paper towel and then placed inside insulated foam into a box. This box is then placed inside another shipping box from the U.S. Post Office. All the care possible is taken when sending out hatching eggs. Cost for Speckled Sussex eggs is $3.00 each or $30.00 a dozen.
There is no minimum on number of eggs ordered. There is NO guarantee eggs will hatch
A guarantee is given eggs will be fresh and in good shape for incubation. Many factors exist beyond my control which may contribute to incubation success or failure. When incubating hatching eggs have your incubator prepared and turned on for 24 hours prior to arrival. When you and your eggs arrive home, carefully unwrap each egg and inspect them. Discard any broke or cracked eggs. Place eggs pointy end down into an egg carton and store unmoved for 18 to 22 hours at 70 degrees F prior to placing in your incubator. This is called the resting period and is very important. It can greatly increase your hatch rate. You can expect 40% to 50% of eggs to hatch.
When placing an order please read all the information, and other information given on this website. Once payment is made you are agreeing to our purchase policies. Orders are filled in order of payment received and the Farm will not be able to give an exact date until chicks have hatched. This is a small breeding venture on the farm and not a high production hatchery. Please keep in mind we are working with live animals and laying patterns and fertility are out of my control. Hatching can not be rushed, especially those chicks who depend on a living creature, the hen to incubate the eggs.
