    What's your hens diet do they free range, ETC. But most likely it a good price.

    Sounds great!! I never hatched any Eggs before and I bought a Hova Bator that I will pick up on Saturday! I just want to experiment with my son and see if we can hatch anything, but did not want to spend SO MUCH! WOW. I went to eggbid and ebay, found some that were interesting, but your price sounds really good! I will take any donations as well, we are most likely going to sell any that hatch anyways (well, since I am addicted I might keep a few). Let me know! Anyone! Thanks!

    that awesome but i dont want to raise my price because my elder neighbor had me come over today. i gave him 4 eggs last week to see if he liked them and he said they were the best eggs he has had in 50 years. so he was like want to make a deal? he wants to get a dozen eggs each week for 2.25 but i kinda want to lower it because he is so sweet but i dont want to lower it because i wont be making enough. im getting 21 eggs a week so im only selling them to him for now but when my 3 other pullets start to lay it will mean 42 eggs a week then i will start to sell to everyone.

    We sell ours for $4.00 a dozen, and we free range and give them organic layer pellets ,scratch, and greens that have overgrown from our greenhouses pretty much anything they want outta our farm store and everythings organic. The only kicker is we can't label our eggs organic, it costs an extra $250 with our WSDA.

    They "Organic free range" Eggs in a grocery store are up to $4.99 a dozen and we know that those chickens don't really get to free range at all.

    Base your prices off of what your local economy is like. Take a peek at what store eggs are and go from there. I sell for 3 a dozen, which is under priced, but my customers have to go out of their way to come get eggs, rather than just pick them up from the store while they are there.

    There is no reason that you can't sell your eggs for a higher price to everyone else and keep his at the "low introductory offer." [​IMG]
