    I found out a lot about my geese this year and I think I may have to change the prices of my eggs? What do you think?

    I breed Grey Dewlap Toulouse but one of my ganders has a recessive gene for buff. This year a more then a quarter of my goslings were buff. All the buffs were females. I charged $20 for my eggs before I knew this, should I charge more for the chance at getting buff?
    I'm also planning on trying my buff girl with the split buff gander this year, how much should I charge for them? It should be 50% buff (girls and boys) and 50% grey ( The males will be split, the females grey). This is the girl's first year at laying though, should I keep the price down in case fertility isn't as good as usual because of her age?

    My fertility has been 80-100% on all shipped eggs so far. Even those shipped as far as Maryland. :)

    I'll try and get some updated pictures of the geese now that a couple of them are fat for show.
