    Most purebred chicks sell from $1.50 to $3.50+ depending upon breed.

    $1 to $1.50 for every chick that hatches would be my guess.

    kinda hard to say time, bator cost, power usage are all factors i sell my "mutt" chicks for 1.50 and firnish the eggs. so my guess would be in the range of 1.00 to 1.50 for hatched chicks or .50 to 1.00 of all eggs put in.
