    I posted a topic that I wanted some showgirl eggs - preferrably white and I had a person tell me they would sell them for #33.00 plus shipping for 6 eggs....I think that is crazy...what is your opinion?

    The eggs are $33? If so, then I guess that depends on their stock...did you see pictures of their flock?

    Depending on where they are being shipped from .
    $15.00 shipping isn't unreasonable.
    I have paid $22.00 shipping plus the cost of the eggs.
    basically it boils down to , how much you are willing to pay for shipping, how badly you want the eggs.

    Maybe find someone closer and avoid shipping all together?

    to clerify- that was $33 total for 6+ white showgirl eggs and it included shipping not in addition to the cost of the eggs.

    i have never had to charge over $15 for shipping alone why on earth would i charge that for shipping plus the eggs?? if u didn't understand that u should have pm'ed me to ask questions.

    yes, i have pics of my flock all over my website for people to see and can gladly take more pics if that is not enough.

    Quote:be lucky their not OEGBs.. for a dozen ("SQ" eggs.. figure how you get that when you cant show eggs that i know of). its about 50-60. plus shipping.. also that way with most breeds.. but you get what you pay for-. unless its coming from greedy people. then you get a 1$ bird for 1,000 [​IMG]

    Not when you have exhibition birds that you pay 100+ per bird, are a breeder that is dedicated to improving the breed,show your birds AND are not out to make a qucik buck off of birds.
    Id say that's very reasonable.
