    I going to incubate some barnyard mix eggs. Is it hard to sell them and what price should I ask.

    Research if there's a demand in your area. If not, you'll have to ship. Buyers are going to be looking for viability of eggs - if for example, you've hatched 9 out of 10 eggs of a batch between a hen and a roo, they'd be 90% viable (buyers will feel more confident if you've hatched eggs yourself). Posting parent breed/pictures and temperament can always help - if you're not sure who mom or dad are, post what chickens are in your mix.

    Look around for prices online and hang around that (if they can find Leghorn eggs for $2 dollars a piece they're probably not going to spend $7 if that's what you ask for). Shipping can be expensive if you mail so keep that in mind.
