I certainly recommend that you do not list your address, and do not allow anyone to come to your home for eggs - or you may one day come home to find all your birds gone. Meet prospective buyers at a neuteral (well populated) place.
Just a thought, if you're only going to be able to sell your eggs for close to the price of eating eggs, is it worth it to have to collect them then meet someone in a neutral place (I totally agree about giving out your address.) An easier idea it seems is to just tell your extended family, neighbors, friends or coworkers when you have eggs. You'd be surprised how many people will want eggs.
If you have only three hens you might have only a dozen eggs to sell per week, and maybe some weeks, especially during colder weather. not that many.
Plus people who want to hatch eggs generally want to do it early spring through summer so if you have good layers you will have times when you have eggs and no one wants to hatch.
Unless you want to pack up your eggs and ship them, there Is more call for eating eggs than hatching eggs.
Or....if you have a good broody or incubator, you can offer to hatch then sell the chicks. In our area there are more people wanting chicks than hatching eggs.
