    That depends on a lot of things: the quality of your birds, the number of eggs being shipped, then there's the shipping costs as well. The most I would pay for RIR is about $12, but I really don't like them [​IMG] Maybe $20 for a dozen BR, if they are decent quality. Both these would include shipping [​IMG]
    Just go with what you think they are worth, and if that doesn't work, lower your price [​IMG] Or hatch them yourself [​IMG]

    I charge $12 for a doz. Barred Rock and $16 for a doz. Speckled Sussex eggs and shipping supplies plus shipping cost which depends on where they are shipped.
