Prices vary upon location, types of chicken living (free range/ coop/ pastured & cost of feed), the need for your eggs (if there are egg selling at every home, you'd have to compete with that) and where would you sell them to get a profit.
We were charging more than dropped due to more customers coming to us & we give discounts. Returning customers & returning egg cartons. We are in Ohio.
Dozen eggs $3.50 and 3$ discount
18 eggs 4.00 3.50 discount
I sell many 2-3 dozen eggs as well, it all works out in the end. Another pointer is when someone asks for eggs, those eggs are claimed to that person. For example a lady from Dr office said she needed 2 dozen eggs a week in advance, no matter who else needed eggs; those 2 dozen eggs we collected were hers. Also a pharmacist went on vacation but mentioned she'd need eggs this week, those eggs were hers and she greatly appreciated this.

I have only bought eggs for over the past 10  years if I have known the owners and their chooks and know that the chooks are loved and looked after.

 

Here in Victoria Australia - I have paid up to $6 a dozen.

 

3 months ago - a long time dream came true.

 

Now I have 3 chooks of my own, Rescue battery hens. and I get between 2 to 3 eggs a day.

 

I don't sell my eggs. They are priceless. I have more eggs than my family can eat - so its the best of family and friends that get my Chooks presents.

 

Betty, May and Lucy are very happy in their retirement home.

 

Even the cat loves them.
