If there is any reason for a delay such as the breeding cycle meaning that a certain food is shedding or hatching we will contact you straight away to let you know when you can expect your order. Orders sent via Royal Mail First Class post generally arrive the following day but can take 2-3 days to arrive.

We also offer additional methods of shipping at the checkout such as recorded delivery, guaranteed next day delivery and international delivery. These options will be displayed at the checkout.

NEW CHILLED DELIVERY OPTION We now supply a cold delivery option, with this option your products will be sent in a temperature controlled polystyrene box with ice pack to ensure that your eggs stay cold so they can be refrigerated on arrival and hatched at your discretion. When hatching the eggs, they will take approximately 7 days once removed from the fridge. This option is a £7.99 additional charge and must be requested in advance so that we can arrange this for you.
