    Do I wait after a pullet has started laying, before I can incubate or sale the eggs for hatching?

    ya. wait until the hen has had some time to start laying when she first starts i would say. But you shouldn't have to wait very long.
    Good luck! [​IMG]

    If she is laying real small eggs, wait till the eggs are close to standard size for her breed and they should be fine.
