    We don't sell eggs, but my husband brings me some orders for small woodworking projects like coin displays and display tables. I make them and he sells them at work. I also build bow and gun racks sometimes.

    Gman at $2/ dozen how much money do you figure you are losing? [​IMG] Around here eggs at roadside stands are selling for between $2.50 to $5.00 a dozen. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    my wife and i both sell eggs at work. every time i bring eggs in it seems like more people want them. i love it. we sell them for $3 a dozen. the cost of a dozen eggs with the egg carton costs a few cents less than 2 bucks. we put all the money into our feed fund.

    around here the cheap kroger eggs cost $1.99 a dozen, and my eggs are way better than those. i also take good care of my birds and people are willing to pay a little extra for that.

    I sold mine at work for $3 a dozen. When I got sick and had to take a leave, I think some folks were more concerned about the lack of eggs than my health lol.

    I sell to a friends mom and all i asked her for was $2-3 a dozen but she pays me much better. Most of the time 3 or 4 but lately I'd been slacking off on getting them sold quickly and would end up with three dozen and she'll give me $15. So on average i get $4-5 a dozen. I'm pretty happy because we don't eat eggs (no particular reason) and we only end up using them for baking since we don't buy store eggs now.

    My dad sells for 2.50 a dozen at work for me, but we are planning to up the price due to feed cost and our 'rivals' Walmart and kroger :rolleyes: we have the best marketing tool... yolks the color of a Nuclear Reaction :D

    losing some, but I can easily sell eggs here at 3.00dz

    so selling them at 2.00dz makes the earth scales balance. and im selling them to friends, not just complete strangers.

    would you rather me having a poke to the eyes?
