    Hello I am new to this site I have been around chickens for most of my life, now I am terribly interested to learn all I can about this hobby of mine.
    My question now is how much can I charge to incubate someone else chicken eggs, they find this way is a better success rate. I have been turning the eggs morning and night by hand and using my power for the incubator.? Molly

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I've never charged to incubate someone else's eggs, but definitely post on the links that Mountain Peeps left you with. Hopefully someone on one of them can tell you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your information regarding incubation.

    I've never charged to incubate chicken eggs, though I know that some people do. Definitely post in the incubating sections for more help.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Wow, I have never charged to incubate eggs either. But just add up all your time, electricity and effort it took to hatch them and charge them what you think it was worth.

    Good luck with the hatches and welcome to our flock!
