    I charge $1.50 per dozen of my large eggs! I have sold all my eggs at that price and continue to get more orders!

    I get $3 here in sw wa. Check your local CL (farm/garden section) to get an idea what they're going for in your area.

    The OP is in Australia.. So things are a little different out here. I think $3 - $ 4 a dozen is a good price range for genuine free range. But it does depends a lot on how many other people in your area sell them..how many you have and who is buying them. OH...also the size too.. Bantam or standard fowl - you would have different prices depending on the size of the eggs.

    I've heard you can get away with charging more if you have a variety of colors (egg shells). People will pay for the novelty.

    here the organic farmers market eggs go for 7-8$ a dozen! But thats at the market, and thats organic, BUT they dont even have orange yolks! Alot of ppl on cl here sell em from 3-5$ not sure about conventional egg prices though, dont really pay attention to them...like 1$ or 2$ i guess?
