I'm in the SW Ohio area. What is the going price for free range, antibiotic free chicken eggs?
I can't speak for your area, but in UT they are going for about $3.00 a dozen.
Check the farm and garden section of CL in your area. Egg prices vary a lot not only from state to state, but urban and rural as well. There are always several listing for eggs in my local CL so I think that would be a good place to get an idea of what they're going for in your area.

(p.s. No commercial egg laying hens are given hormones. Ever. Some egg cartons say that the eggs are hormone free; however, this is true for all eggs in commercial egg production in the United States.)
We sell ours for $3 a dozen.
It seems that some folks are willing to pay more when they know how well the hens are treated.
I sell a dozen for three bucks. But there worth alot more.

We are selling ours at $3. per dozen after our customers, told us that $2. wasn't enough
thanks that give me an idea of were to start.
Right now I'm getting slightly over 2 dozen eggs a day and I'm paying about $30 every 2 weeks for feed so I figure if I'm selling my eggs for $2 a doz I'm breaking even. Not looking to recover my total investment--that might be impossible--but at least taking in enough to maintain the birds. BTW, I don't sell all 28 doz. eggs over a two week period, we probably use or give our kids half of them.
BTW, I could probably get more for the eggs but I'd rather people get and used them. If I were to sell at a farmers' market or stand where there were a constant flow of customers I would go for the $3 to $4 price but I rely on people coming to the house as they need them.
