    I have two questions.

    1: How much do fertilized eggs usually sell for? I have a guy wanting to buy 100 and I have no idea what the asking price should b.

    2: I have one hen sitting on two eggs, has been for a long time. I don't think they are good eggs, How long will she sit there? or should I remove the eggs?

    1. you can check ebay or eggbid to see what eggs similar to yours are selling for.
    2. If she is broody, she may sit there a long time-search here for "broody hen" if you want to find ways to get her out of the nest and laying again.
