    I would also go cheap on the first couple of batches, just until you know they are fertile and you can work any kinks out of your shipping and handling to help ensure a successful hatch.

    I've seen on here where they're getting $1 an egg [​IMG] at the Asian markets.... They are a delicacy. they pickle them and add to salads.. They were selling 10 packs (ten eggs:) for $10!!!!
