    I charge 30$ for a dozen + 2 hatching eggs. My chickens have a high ferility rate. But i also sell chicks to ppl who interested... Not sure how much to charge on chicks? Ive been charging 4$ each and people seem fine with it..these are black jersey giants.

    I paid $30 dozen for a dozen hatching eggs. 6 black copper French marans & 6 Olive Eggers.
    Regular farm fresh eggs around here go for $3 dozen and one day old chicks depending on breed, start at $1 each and go up from there. Our local feed store had Black Jersey Giants for $3 each this year. I had already mail ordered mine and paid a bit more for them after you include the shipping.

    I think your prices are fair and really depends on what the market around you is getting for these items.
