    I'm just curious as to how much everyone is charging for their eggs (non hatching) this year......I seem to see a lot of $1.50 or $2.00. I was going to raise mine to $2.00 this year but then I see lots of $1.50 and want to be in a competitive range.
    My eggs are large brown and can include green/blue from Americaunas.

    I just searched my local craigslist, but no one is advertising! I recall seeing them for $3.00 and up here, which makes sense because Eggland's Best Cage-Free go for $3.59 a dozen. (I have to buy these as I can't find a steady local seller. They're not "farm fresh," but at least they don't make me nauseous like the cheap-o ones.)

    They sell for about $3/doz here, but I'd love to pay $1.50/doz, or even $2/doz.

    We sell our organically fed hen's eggs for $3.00 a dozen. My FIL sells his hen's eggs for $2.00 a dozen.

    $2 a dozen until they start cranking out larger eggs. They started to lay in Dec, so the eggs are still a bit small.
    Then $3, or $2.50 if you trade a carton too.

    $3-4/doz

    Local butcher sells them for $6/doz, as do the Seattle farmers markets.
