    We have a Blue Slate tom, a Naraganasett? tom and a Black Spanish tom. We have 1 Naraganasett? hen, 2 Blue Slate hens, and a Black Spanish hen. They are all in together. I have 22 eggs in the incubator on day 15, 4 are clear and 1 has a blood ring all the rest have poults in them. We are getting at least 2 to 4 eggs a day. Do you think anyone would be interested in buying hatching eggs? How much do you think we should sell them for?

    Thank you for any help - just don't have a clue. I wouldn't mind hatching them but I don't know what I'd do with all of them. lol

    So far, there are 5. Four of them are black and one is a blue one. I see why we get addicted to hatching. lol

    Eat them! Make brownies!!!


    Yeah, people like mutt turkey eggies. My turkeys are mutts, and they are fabulous. I don't care if they aren't pure breeds--they rock the casbah in so many ways.

    Mine are also "mutts" but very pretty. I'm sure that people would by either hatching eggs or poults.

    Thank you so much for all the replies. Yes, we would eat them but we are getting 5 to 7 dozen eggs a day from our chickens. lol I love hatching them, too, but need to stop. I would love to sell you some eggs, just have heard some awful things about shipping them. Joy
