    wondering if anyone minds letting us know what the going rate for processed meat and eggs in your areas are to such places as restraunts and markets

    I don't know about restaurants, but I order chickens from Amish here every year. They buy them from chick days at the feed mill for 50 cents, raise them for 8 weeks, have them processed and I pay $7 per chicken. For me, that's worth it for the time and feed it takes to raise them. If I did it myself, they would charge $2 apiece to process.
    You can't get more than $2 for a dozen eggs here. [​IMG]

    Quote: I get $5.00 for a 10 pack of quail eggs and $5-$6 for processed quail that I sell in 2-packs. Prices will vary by area.. Supply and demand.
