    I know that someone on here collected a bunch of info over time from BYC members and put it all in a list to show how much different folks are charging for their eggs around the country.

    But i can't seem to find it.

    Anyone know where it is?

    We charge $3.00/dozen in Nashville, TN where my husband works. We have more requests than we can fill!

    I was able to find that thread, but i remember that someone had compiled all that information into a simple reference by state. I guess i should have bookmarked it. [​IMG]

    We do $3/dozen for the people hubby works with, with an "egg club" where when you buy 4 dozen, you get the 5th free. For some friends, I sell at $2/dozen.

    Of course, now I'm going to have to add more chickens in Spring to fill requests. Oh, darn. [​IMG]

    I give my extras away. Last thing I want is someone suing me because they were dumb and got sick for not storing or cooking them properly.

    Quote:Good point. We usually sell our extras to people we know in the office where my husband works for $2 a dozen. I suppose that could come back to bite us...... Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone tried to pasteurize the egg you sell?

    I get $2 a doz. I've seen $1 but not sure why or how. $2 is average.

    I've seen $2.50 but in the stores they are $.99 for white crap no taste eggs. Fertile eggs are sold for more and organics have come down about $3.50.

    I give information to all new customers about the health of pastured eggs. This is copies of information from literature I've read. Books and magazines. If anyone would like a copy of this stuff pm me and I can fax or e-mail it to you. We want people to know that we are raising healthy chickens for healthy eggs. I believe we should get the word out. I take the info to the UPS store to copy for cheap. You could also use the Public library.

    Wishing us all the best
