    Gonna be selling quail eggs next spring....
    wanted to know if you all thought these are fair prices:

    1 Dozen Jumbo Cortunix Quail - 2.50 + S&H
    2 Dozen Jumbo Cortunix Quail - 2.50 + s&h
    anymore then that would be plus 1.50 a dozen

    1 Dozen Texas A&M Whites - 2.50 S&H
    2 - Dozen Texas A&M Whites 4.00 + S&H
    anymore then that would be plus 1.50 a dozen

    1 Dozen Golden Cortunix - 3.00 + S&H
    2 Dozen Golden Cortunix - 6.00 + S&H
    anymore then that would be plus 2.00 a dozen

    I'm just planning ahead to see if anyone would want some before I invest in more cages and end up with 50 eggs everyday with no one wanting them.

    Thanks

    That's pretty cheap for hatching eggs, although I dont know much about quail. Maybe someone who sells quail eggs for hatching, like Sam, can comment. For pickup, I charge $1/egg, up to $10 for my Blue Orp hatching eggs. I dont charge that much for a more common breed. $2.50-$3.00 is what I get for eating eggs. I bet you'd have no trouble at those prices.

    Quote:Feed only costs 13$ for a 50lb bag thats all the money I need and maybe a lil profit to put in a jar to get an incubator or new equipment for them.

    Well, anything that you can make will certainly help with the feed bill! I'm sure you'll have no trouble selling these. [​IMG]
