    Krista, she has been averaging $200.00 a dozen for her eggs. She has very nice Copper Blacks and is a great person to deal with. The price for Copper Blacks is completely out of whack this season. Wait until next Spring if you want to get some Copper Blacks. If 25% of the eggs sold hatch the supply will drive the price down considerably, as everybody will be trying to get on the "Gravy Train".

    I have seen the eggs going for about $100 a half dozen on ebay. My luck I would end up with all roos if I bought these [​IMG] . I am not questioning the quality at all, I was just checking [​IMG] . I am lined up to get some eggs this fall from "good lines" but I like to diversify. I don't care about the "gravy train", just want some pretty eggs [​IMG]

    Wow, really high price. [​IMG] Is there something that we don't understand about these particular birds that brings their value up so much? Cause I've got a BCMarans from a good breeder in FL and I had no idea of such a high value. Geez I might have to built her a separate coop [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Everybody just wants those dark eggs, and they do look good but at the end of the day they are still just chickens...

    Hey, folks, this is a new member who has gotten nothing but stellar reviews for her eggs that were being sold on eBay. When I saw that he/she was a new member here I was really excited. Seemed nice to have the person right here with us.

    Then I saw that all he/she got was slammed. Is that really a nice way to greet a new and valuable resource?

    It's embarrassing.
    Be nice.

    Sorry Susan,
    I have to disagree. Unless a person is familiar with the high demand on this breed it is natural to have *sticker shock*. Regardless of the quality, I honestly believe that $50 a chick is a ridiculous price. I was being *nice* when checking to see if that was the actual price. The top breeders charge $60-$70 a dozen for their eggs, and yes the waiting list is HUGE. There was no slamming, unless you try to say asking if that was a typo is slamming. I don't get in on conflict on this forum but I think you saying we were *embarrassing* is an insult. I am always civil and try to help everyone out. I know she has lovely birds, and I am glad she sold them. I too am glad to have a member with such fine birds, but if she took offense I am sorry and would have responded as such if SHE had posted. I just think you took a defense here that was not required [​IMG]

    Have a wonderful day! [​IMG]

    The price a person is asking is only too high if you can't find someone to buy what you're selling.
