    I have never sold any fertilized eggs before . Anybody have any idea what the going price is ?

    I have several different breeds , RIR'S , buff orpington's , black Austrolorp's , barred rocks , black leghorns .

    All are mixed together in the same coop/run , except my buff's .

    So , any idea on price of mixed fertilized eggs , AND price for pure buff's ?

    Thanks in advance

    People don't usually pay much (if at all) for mixed breed eggs...maybe cost of shipping plus a couple bucks. For the purebred Orps I would say $12-15 per dozen, but that could go up or down depending on quality. [​IMG]

    Pures are around $1 a egg an the people with good stock can get around $2 each. If ya get $5 a dozen for mutts you should be happy .

    The chickens themselves aren't mutts, but whatever hatches from their eggs would be...see what we mean? That's why they're "mutt eggs." Not a bad term, just accurate. My RIR girls are in w/ my Ameraucana roo, but their eggs are "mutt eggs" since they're not fertilized by the same breed. Does that make sense?

    Ok, sorry if I offended anyone...I know some people don't like the word mutts, but I use it affectionately. [​IMG]
