    Is it common for people to hatch chicks as a business and then sell them?

    Where do people who breed chicks sell them to? Like say if I wanted to incubate some eggs (approx. 24 or so) and then wanted to sell them once born, where would I sell them to?

    Quote:Craigslist... just sold some for $3/ chick. Post in local newspaper. Do you have flea markets? Farmer's markets? Swap meets?
    Contact a local 4-H or FFA...

    I'll definitely try Craigslist. Unfortunately, I live in a pretty ritzy town so there are no farmer markets of that sort. I will post an ad on Craigslist asking if anyone would be interested. Then I will begin the process! Thanks for the help! Keep the information coming! lol

    Laskaland, how many chicks did you sell and do you have to make a certain breed or most times people dont care?
