First of all if you are selling eggs for 3.00 or less a dozen you are not making money it is a hobby Selling hatching eggs will make money. I get at least 60.00 a dozen for my dc eggs. On the subject of sop... If someone decided to not use it that is fine but if you want to make money you need sop birds to be able to get the best price for your product that is where the higher paying clientele resides 10.00 for hatching eggs is peanuts not worth the effort to collect IMO. You also have to figure your time. The labor rate for what you do collecting eggs for selling as eating is worth minim wage at best , I won't work for that so I sell sop quality birds where my time is worth more and my expertise with my breed is worth something You don't sell pintos at a Porsche lot either.
