    I've seen some listed for that, don't know what 'strain' they were. In early spring they can bring that much.

    Quote:Heck, maybe I'm a lil' slow, but with this economy, $1+ for plain ol' Northern Bob eggs is STEEP. One could beat that price a country mile on Ebay, and prolly be just as lucky on fertility and non-breakage. Heck, we have sellers in the Ms. Farm Market Bulletin here with Northern Bob eggs for 20ยข each.........and they are reputable folks....just sayin' [​IMG]

    1.08/ Egg Is Because They Have To Buy Them From The Quail Farm, Then Pack 'em And Ship 'em And Make A Tidy Profit Themselves..... Much Better Off To Buy Direct From The Quail Farm

    As For The Price, Well I Guess That Old Saying About A Fool And His Money May Be True?
