    I am incubating 30 chicken eggs and due to craigslist being full of "Chick for Sale!" advertisements, I'm not sure if they all will sell. I can take only a few more chickens, given they are all hens.

    Any suggestions on what to do with the ones that don't sell and I can't keep? What did you do with yours in the past?

    (Have two more weeks of incubating and no inquiry's yet...) :(

    Where are you located? Perhaps some people on here that live near you might take some off your hands.

    You might see what feed/livestock supply stores are around your area. They usually deal in chicks around this time of year and will occasionally buy chicks off of private breeders for resale.
