*YOU NEED AN INCUBATOR BEFORE THE EGG WILL SHIP*
These are incubating and will be ready to ship within the next few weeks. After you place your order, we will reach out to you via email and figure out a game plan for delivering your egg! We will not ship unless your incubator has been on for 24 hours..
A Hatch A Tortoise Instahatch egg is 100% fertile and days away from hatching. The egg is candled, heart monitored and documented through out incubation to confirm that it is developing properly. The egg is shipped 10 days before its predicted hatch date. Like a human’s due date, an Instahatch predicted hatch date is just an estimate. Based on our experience and knowledge we make the judgment call on when the egg is ready to ship.Hatching your own tortoise is super easy as long as you follow the detailed care guide.

Remember, for every tortoise egg bought from Tortstork, $10 is donated to a turtle/tortoise conservation group to help save these amazing animals.
Shipping is overnight. We use FedEx and is $60 flat rate fee. Shipping will be added to your order at checkout.

*Please note that you need to supply your own incubator. We suggest the Hovobator 1602N You do not need an egg turner or anything else that amazon will try to sell you. We supply you with a deli-cup and substrate for incubating the egg for the final few days of development
**Hatch A Tortoise Instahatch eggs are 100% guaranteed to hatch (as long as you use the recommended incubator or an approved one, confirmed by us). If your egg does not hatch you will get your money back (minus shipping).

Big thanks to Helix!!! It was a social media video of him that led us to Randy, and into one of the coolest experiences we’ve ever had.
We chose an insta-hatch egg. ?
It arrived on a Friday just beginning to pip. By Sunday, our family had grown by one little Eastern Hermanns hatchling named Rockett!
Randy was unbelievably helpful before, during and following the hatching process.
He answered more questions than we care to admit asking! His knowledge and willingness to help new tortoise parents made this an amazing experience for our whole family.

Customer service with Tortstork is top notch! Randy was so helpful through our whole process. Unfortunately our little one didn’t make it which from what we understand is tremendously rare, but Tortstork did everything they could to make it right. Randy was supportive and sympathetic through the whole thing. We are supposed to get our replacement in the next couple days. That’s what you call 100% guaranteed. I would and will recommend Tortstork to anyone interested in buying a tortoise as their life long friend.

Our tortoise hatched today and she is absolutely beautiful. Randy was so helpful and patient with all my questions. I will definitely be purchasing another tortoise from them in the future. Great company and tortoises. Thanks Randy.

Our little girl is almost 3 months old now and she is the sassiest little baby, so much personality! Very healthy and beautiful little tortoise. I highly recommend Tortstork if you are looking to buy a baby tortoise or as I did an Instahatch Egg, I received the best customer service from Randy and a gorgeous tortoise!!

I ordered two insta-hatch eggs from TortStork and the experience has been amazing. The eggs arrived on October 13th and one of the eggs started to hatch just hours after opening the box. The second egg took a little longer and I was starting to worry, but Randal checked in very often to see how it was doing and has been very helpful throughout the whole process. Not to mention, he was always there to answer whatever question or concern that I had, within minutes. The second egg (finally!) hatched on the 19th and now both tortoises are doing amazing. They are incredibly cute and healthy and I could not be happier with them both. I would absolutely order from TortStork again. And you should too!

This is an experience like no other. I bought this for my 6yo, but I have enjoyed it just as much as him (if not more). Randy was an absolute pleasure and an incredible source of knowledge and encouragement. I really could go on and on, but I will just end this saying, when we add another tortoise to the family, we will be coming back to TortStork.

We have had the best experience with Randy and Tortstork! We got a Hermanns tortoise egg and he had hatched and is acclimating well. Randy seems to have a kind of intuition with the eggs. He checks in, responds very quickly and obviously cares deeply about the babies getting there safely, hatching, and being cared for properly. Hatching a tortoise was an amazing opportunity to have a learning experience for my son as well as create a really deep bond with a really cool animal. We are thrilled this company exists and I love that he donates to help the natural habitats of the creatures. All around great people and a great eggsperience!!

This little girl is our third successful baby to hatch! We thought she was going to be a twin at first from the way she was positioned in her egg it looked like there were two babies, but she is just one healthy, happy, beautiful baby Hermann. I can’t get enough of the instahatch experience, it is so exciting to see your little baby tortoise hatching and you are the first person they will see, I LOVE my tortoises so much and love tortstork! I recommend to everyone I know who is interested in a tortoise.

I can’t say enough about Randy (the owner) and our tortoise! It was such an amazing experience to see our egg hatch, and Randy was there every step of the way answering my 101 questions and giving suggestions on what was best for our newest little family member. 100% recommend TortStork. You can tell they care about every pet.

Our experience with the Tort Stork Instahatch Egg was nothing short of amazing. Our little baby was slow to hatch, but Randy was so supportive and cares so much about the animals and customer experience. This was by far one of the coolest adventures we’ve ever had and look forward to watching our hatchling grow. We love Tort Stork!
