    I'm in OK and sell a doz. for $2. I could probably get another .50.

    I've heard that some people get upwards of $5 in other areas.

    My neighbor gives me $3 and tells everyone else I charge that, but my actual price is $2.50/doz. Lately, selling on the street, I let them have them for $2/doz if they buy at least 2 doz. I'm about to have 18 new layers start up, so I'll have lots of eggs soon. And my fridge isn't huge.

    EDITED TO ADD: that's for table eggs, not hatching eggs.

    out here in Michigan, people get anywhere from $2-4.50 depending on several, free-range, color etc.

    hope you do egg-ceedingly well!

    How does egg color affect your egg pricing?
