Just curious how many folks around here hatch eggs and sell chicks. ?? Maybe not the right thread to ask, but its something I think about more recently. I've given away so many eggs and chickens over the years I feel a bit foolish sometimes. I've always free ranged all the chickens, and gave away most roosters so they wouldn't be crowing and bushwacking us all over the place.
I got into the chicken routine initially for bug control plus a few eggs. Then, I discovered the Black Copper Maran dark egg phenomena, and would buy eggs for my Hovabator, and hatch a few. One of my neighbors, being industrious, is now selling his Maran offspring that he got from me. I've decided to keep a Maran rooster, and try to sell a few eggs or chicks. Still, I wonder if I'd regret splurging on a nice incubator like these. Not sure I'd be ready for the growth of flock and labor.
