I remember not too long ago when the Coronation Sussex eggs were going for $900+ on ebay!

Are you serious?   No wonder everyone seems to have them now....geez!  Ya know, I think people have a right to do whatever they'd like with their money assuming it doesn't hurt anyone, but this is one thing I really don't understand.  Good for the folks who are getting that much at auction for eggs, though!  Let's keep that economy moving, right?!

Same thing is happening with cream legbars and blue isbars now.  The price is quickly coming down.  By the time these folks hatch the eggs and the chicks get old enough to breed, they'll only be worth a fraction of what they're paying now.

Golden eggs i hope

Problem is they never lay inside the nest boxes, so you gotta go out and hunt for the eggs!

But if you've just paid $460 for SIX (6) eggs, you can surely hire someone to do the egg huntin' for you.   gig.gif
