    So usually we just sell our eggs and never hatch them but we were thinking about trying to hatch some. If anyone has any kind of advice or info about the entire process that would be great! Like I said we have never done it before so anything helps!

    We sell them for just $5 per egg but that's for eggs that won't hatch.

    Would you consider selling hatching eggs and what state are you located in? [@]mich9510
