    Ok so, I just found this website. The eggs are listed for $100.00 for 12 eggs. [​IMG] Am I crazy... or is that just crazy??
    Look at the egg pictures, expecially the ones in the hay.
    Are they really worth $100.00 for 12 eggs???? [​IMG]

    Wanted to add...that I have no idea about these chickens so I dont know how much they would go for. This may be a fair price. [​IMG]

    Yes, it's nuts, but as a friend of mine said about selling cars, there's a butt for every seat, if you want your price, you just have to wait it out until someone wants to pay the price.

    Long, OK
    A reasonable price for quality BCM eggs. But be careful, sometimes the "qaulity" part is what gets you. Just because they are dark eggs, doesn't mean the Marans are of quality.

    BCM's usually go up to $130 on ebay or more for just 6+. I dont think the price will ever go down since its been like that for almost 3 years.

    I wouldn't pay it. I'm entirely too willing to wait until a good deal falls into my lap, and it will.

    But it's the only egg that James Bond has ever ordered.... The only egg that Martha Stewart will allow in her kitchen...
