    Hello,

    I always glean so much wonderful information from the forums and I want to thank everyone for there insight :) I am a chicken fanatic and the past couple of years I have enjoyed incubating eggs. I can't keep them all, so I typically sell the extra's to cover the cost and make a little extra. My problem is that I tend to really love the more unique breeds with hatching egg's that can cost quite a bit and locally most people want cheap chicks, they could care less about the genetics, heritage or uniqueness.
    I currently have some beautiful blue laced red Wyandotte's that will start laying this year and I am going to hatch out some Favaucana's, cream legbars, Bielefelder as well as a few other breeds but I don't know how to reach out to a market who would like these breeds. Other than craigslist, is there any other site I can list the chicks?

    The buy sell trade thread here of the breeds thread are good places to start. Also try your state thread for local prospective buyers
