    I'm getting some unfertile eggs from these guys and I've never seen swedish duck hatching eggs for sale and I'm just asking for an estimate of sorts for these eggs. I will of course post pictures of the parents and some of the babies I've hatched from these guys. I've only taken three to one show and that was at the county fair.

    I won: Champion Medium Duck, 2 1st, 3 seconds (I took three and bought two from another 4h'er)

    here are some pictures:

    WOW Those are gorgeous. I don't know what you would get for the eggs, but very pretty birds!

    If I were to sell eggs from my trio, I would sell them for $1.00 - $1.50 each plus shipping.

    I miss my blue swede drake [​IMG] . As far as price.... Not sure what id pay. Maybe $7 OR $8 for a half dozen? I mean you would make more money from the ducklings than eggs thats for sure.

    of course but not a big duck market out here but i think i might want to charge maybe $8-10 for a half dozen and $13-15 for a dozen plus shipping would that be too much but the value will go up if they do well at the open show im not jacking up the price for a county fair win but ive seen some people sell a dozen of EE eggs for $20 so i dont think thats too outrageous

    Quote:Yep, EEs are so common and they're not even a pure breed so $20 is too much, but I think the prices you said for the duck eggs would be very reasonable.

    EEs are common and mixed i consider them a designer chicken since they are bred soo much but you never know what you are going to get from them its crazy even if they have pretty birds no tellin what the babies will look like and i thought those prices would be reasonable hopefully someone who hatches,shows, and sells swedes will chime in soon but i want to be reasonable and not stick it to someone!
