    Easter eggers are a barnyard mix/ mongral to begin with so that doesn't matter. $10 for a dozen fertile eggs seems fair to me. She'll collect fresh, clean eggs daily and store them properly for you. If you incubate correctly those eggs will yield a very high hatch rate.

    We charge for $1/egg for EE hatching eggs. We charge $10/dozen for "our choice" hatching eggs, which includes several different colors of eggs. No guarantees as to what colors of eggs the resulting pullets will lay.

    Meyer Hatchery charges almost $40 for a dozen EE hatching eggs (incl. shipping) if that gives you an idea. And for a price comparison, I've bought purebred BBS Ameraucana hatching eggs for $35/dozen, including shipping.

    You can buy green or blue eggs but if the rooster is not an EE your chances drop dramatically.

    I found a woman who had EE eggs covered by a cooper Moran not if spelling is right if my research is correct I could have hens with blue green brown chocolate or olive colored eggs and I'm located in Arkansas but ended up getting eggs for 5 dollars a dozen and for my next hatch I've lined up 4 to 5 dozen EE eggs from another person maybe 25 miles from my house

    A blue egg that is fertilized by a Marans rooster will never produce a pullet that lays blue eggs. Not genetically possible.
