    I have a cabinet incubator & someone has asked me to incubate eggs for them & wants to pay me for it. What do you charge for something like that?

    there is a guy local here, and he charges $2 an egg for ones that hatch. idk. i guess it would depend how many eggs, what kind, how expensive they are for them to buy (or farm grown).... and how good of a friend they are... LOL.

    Say my BFF wanted to get into chickens, and asked me to incubate, but insisted she pay me. i would charge her prob $1 an egg.

    If its some joe blow, i would charge $2-3 an egg. If he wanted me to do a LOT of eggs, i would give him the lesser price of $2 an egg and more like $3 if i have an almost empty incubator, like 12 eggs.
