I don't sell them for a prophet...aka (John, Elijah, Elisha, ect... wink ) But I do make a nice side income selling them for a profit/ extra income...took about two years to acquire all the breeds I wanted to raise, and now I sell the hatching eggs.

I want to get into the Poultry Business next year. I would be selling the eggs as well as hatching a few clutches of chicks to sell as Pullets and Cockerels. I don't expect to make a large income off of it but there is a small income in the business.

When I first started selling eggs at The Farmer's Market I sold them for $1.00 a Dozen. while I don't have enough eggs to sell at the time I think that I would be able to raise the price to $1.50 without problems.

It kind of depends. would your Customers spend a extra 50 cents on a dozen eggs? if they see no problem in it, sure, raise your price to $1.50 a Dozen. you just don't want to raise them too high or you might scare some customers away.

I have had people asking for eggs at The Farmer's Market. while I don't have any to sell at the moment I think that they would happily pay $1.50 for a Dozen fresh free range chicken eggs.

If you have pure breds...and a roo. You can sell them as hatching eggs on eggbid, or e-bay. Maybe make a bit more than if you sold localy depending on what birds you have, and the quality.
