So I've got a flock of 300's and they are definitely good layers. I've had chickens for years and sold the excess eggs, either to existing folks that know me or sometimes though a craigslist ad, back in the beginning. I've never had an issue selling the chicken eggs, in fact I had to raise my chicken egg price to $5.00 a dozen last year and I still had more customers than eggs.
Now I've had the ducks for a while they are really producing 7 to 8 eggs a day which is more than I can eat for sure even though I love their eggs. The problem is that I haven't been able to find anyone interested in buying duck eggs and I'm not sure why. Do you all think that Duck eggs are less popular than chicken eggs? I've got an ad on craigslist currently asking $8.00 a dozen, two local store chains, PCC and Whole foods carries duck eggs for $10 dozen so I thought $8 would be a fair price. So I guess what I'm asking especially for those that have sold both chicken and duck eggs, are the duck eggs less popular, and do you think $8 is asking to much?
Thanks for your thoughts on this one,
