I have posted locally looking for hatching eggs to try out my new incubator. I'd love to fill it to try it out. ;-) I posted in several places, but also offered a trade, i.e I incubate for someone and get some of the chicks. What is fair, half and half or something different? I'll be using my electricity, gas to pick up the eggs (they'd likely pick up their portion of the chicks), candling, keeping regular e-mail contact about what's going on (candlings, how many are fertile, how many lay down for hatching, how many hatch, etc.). I've requested any type of poultry and will even do mutts, caveat being that they cannot leave me with only cockerels (if they can sex them) nor only mutts if they have me hatch out mutts and pures. What sounds fair to you? Ideally, I'd rather just buy outright, but with finances as they are right now, I'd love to barter and would love to help someone else get chicks that may not have that oppurtunity otherwise.
