    He all,

    I put these 3 together last weekend because I had some folks who live nearby want pure eggs-which is cool with me. I told them I would get back to them on a price-what would you charge for 6+ or 12+ Roo is 8 months old black 11-12lbs--(MY big baby) blue cochin hen is (6lbs) 10 months old and Black cochin girl is 8 months old and is 7 lbs.

    Quote:thank you:) The black roo is a real sweety so gentle-thats why I kept him and his brother-his brother is the same size and I had a hard time deciding who to keep out of 4 of them so I kept the 2 nicest-one in a breeder pen-one runnig with my girls as of yesterday...he hides though...the head roo is intimadating I guess?

    I have seen 20-40 per doz, if showquality, and can say they won .... at the ..... show, the higher you can charge. Well actually you can charge as much as you want, but whether someone buys is another story. Just checked EGGBID, most on there are around $15 a doz, except BCM and Coronation Sussex $52 for 6 [​IMG] so after adding shipping($15), and for peace of mind knowing the Post Office didnt get a chance to scramble them I would say 20 would be a good deal.



    P.S. that is unless you are selling them to me, then I can get eggs at the Walmart for $.79 a dozen, so I will give ya a dollar. [​IMG]
