    Well unbelievably I'm starting to have a few dozen more than I need. I've been approached by friends to sell them but so far I just give the extras away. They're brown and green eggs (Wyandottes,RIR and 1 EE) and they make such a fuss when they lay it seems kind of cold blooded to sell their prizes - how do I put a price on them? What is a fair price?[​IMG]

    Where I live, we get $2/dozen. People will not pay more in this area (NW Florida).

  4. $4 a dozen.
    I wanted to ask $3 (same as the grocery store for free-range eggs) but my non-poultry-loving husband, who pays the $14.50/50 lb bag of feed monthly, set the price.

    However much people will pay! [​IMG] It all comes down to supply and demand. We've had people almost force us to take $5.00 / dz. just because they love that our chickens get a lot of free space and they love the pics of the hens. We also live in an area where there is more demand than supply. I think we could easily get $3 - $4 a dz, but we prefer to just give them to family, friends, neighbors when we have extra.
