    I did some reconnaissance at the local health food store, and asked a local farmer who doesn't have them but knows people who do.

  7. You could check your local Craig's List to get an idea. You may find a range and sometimes its based on factors like if they are fed organically or free range. I do find I can sell mine for higher ($5 doz for eating eggs) than some of the advertisers (as low as $2.50 doz) because the people I sell to seem to have a high appreciation for the work that goes into raising them and the fact that they free range.

    Interesting. I find that locals pay about $2.50 for grain fed chicken eggs. I have not see anyone locally that sells duck eggs so there isnt any way for me to get an idea yet. I have not gone to the Waldo flea market since its out of the way for me. I just dont have any comp's to go with on the duck eggs. I sold a half doz to a gal recently that was sold for $3.50 at her request. My jumbo pekings have rather large eggs and the muscovy having regular eggs about the size of standard "large" chicken eggs. Thanks.
