OSTRICH EGGSHELLS

Real, 100% American, ostrich eggs - blown out, sterilized, and with an 11/16" hole drilled on one end - for home decor or craft projects.  "Naturally Discolored" eggs are exactly as described!  These are otherwise great quality eggs, but the coloring or finish is not as beautiful as on our other eggs.  We recommend them to our artistic friends looking for a not-perfectly-blank canvas or those who want a more "unique" eggshell.
Eggshells become discolored for several reasons, including hen genetics, egg was submerged in a puddle before collection, or our bleach sanitizing bath simply couldn't get the color uniform.  We cannot guarantee any specific type of discoloration - we think they're super cool in their natural state.  Remember, like snowflakes, every ostrich egg is different!

Our blog features several articles about ostrich eggs, their uses, and more.

We go to great lengths to hatch every egg laid on our farm.  As a result, we do not sell edible ostrich eggs.
