I was just wondering about how much is a fair price for eggs? I'm new to all this...
I get $2.50 and that barely covers the feed cost I do request that the customer return the egg cartons. I am in Laurens SC
You can price cage free-range eggs at your supermarket and price accordingly. Depending on your location they can range from $2.50 to $4-5. In urban areas they probably are priced on the higher side. Around me farmers will sell them for $2, but I can get $3.50 at a local produce market. Egg cartons can be an extra expense, also.
It depends on where you are. If you tell us that it helps a lot. I sell mine for $3.

Its awful what the
Big egg production places do to their birds...anyone know how to stop that abuse and neglect...how does one rescue hens from them places?
I don't think something like that happens overnight and really we're all playing a part just by owning chickens and depending less on producers because we are the producers. I just try to spread the chicken fever to all my friends I figure it's worth it to give away one hen to my friends when you KNOW no one ever gets just one chicken and lasts a summer without getting another.
X 2 Here in NJ, they sell for anywhere from $2.50 to $ 4.00/ dozen. A quick answer would be: Whatever the market will bear.
I live in Wilton California which is between Elk Grove and Sacramento Ca. We have Large Brown eggs.
