I have found a deal that I would like to cash in on but I am unsure of myself for lack of knowledge. I read several threads in the forum but remain unsure. I would like to have 50-100 hens laying and I am looking to hatch 1-2 incubators full of chicks a week plus sell some hatching eggs and sell fresh eggs. my incubators come from TSC and are 41 eggs a piece and I am purchasing a turner for them. Now for the questions: I go to the nest box and there is an egg. From there I believe I have 2 choices: Take it and wash it for the fridge or put it in the incubator. Is this correct? I want to sell hatching dozens, These eggs have to be incubated until the customer picks them up correct? An emergency comes up and I can't collect eggs today. Can I collect the eggs tomorrow and place them in an incubator for hatch? At what point do I candle the eggs to see if they are "live"? Really looking forward to this. I am trying to become a reputable source for Black Copper Marans and Blue Copper Marans. Thank you.
