    So our ducks recently started to lay! Now we have the problem how much to sell them for. We got buyers but no idea price...

    Any suggestions? Btw we live in Iowa.

    Out here in the pricey east coast, depending on whether they are organic or not, you can get from $5 to $14 a dozen for duck eggs.

    Duck Eggs are usually 5-7 per dozen around here unless they are organic.

    I can't seem to sell mine down here either since I'm only keeping bantam sized. Someone earlier this week was selling Organic Khaki Campbell eggs for eating at 15 a dozen on craigslist[​IMG]

    Wow, I steam ours and feed them to the dogs, they love them. I also bake with them but my dh won't eat them so I use our chicken eggs for eating here. 15.00 a doz that's amazing.

    There goes our twin telepathy again [​IMG]. I feed all of my eggs to the dogs and occasionally my fish. They love it when the geese are laying [​IMG].

    I get $5 a dozen for them here. What I don't sell I bake with (good thing I sell just about all of them).

    I ask 5$ a dozen for mine as well. I really have made no real efforts to sell them as of yet, they get sold to my husbands co-workers and my mothers lol I have more eggs than I know what to do with though so i need to make effort to get a sign up.

    What do you guys do for the dogs? I need to do this.
