    These are my Millie Fleur D'Uccles. I got them for show birds but every summer I let them sit on a few eggs and hatch a couple chicks. People now have been calling and emailing me wanting eggs and chicks they can't get over how beautiful they are when they grow up. And I figured. Well supply and demand right? So I decided this spring I would start a little business with my these birds and start selling hatching eggs to ship out. but I'm brand new to that???? Not just the shipping the entire egg hatching business. Does any one have tips or suggestions for me? Maybe some information I need to know to start this type of little business?

    I am very interested in buying some of these eggs. Please let me know when you begin to sell.

    Well, it relies on two things. That they start laying this spring. And before I ship out fertile eggs I want to get the parents tested just to make sure the chicks for hatching will have a clean bill of health.
