    How would you go about charging for incubating guinea eggs for someone. I have an amish friend that wants me to incubate her guinea eggs but I didn't know how to charge her - per egg, take a percentage of hatched guineas or how do you charge?

    Around here it would depend on whether or not I was going to hatch somthing for me at the same time , If I had somthing that I was going to set anyway and it was a friend , and I had room , I wouldn't charge them anything . On the other hand if I wasn't planning to set any of my own I would doit in ½'s .
