    I have a person that is wanting me to hatch him out some eggs. I have no idea what I should charge. I will be providing the eggs and hatching them. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

    If it's Marans it could be $3 to $4 a chick.

    If it's Leghorns, $1-$2.

    Other breeds and varieties would be between the two.
