    So, after much discomfort, I've discovered I can't eat my duck eggs. My husband will eat them, and the kids too, but they are piling up faster than they're eating them. How much should I sell them for? Fresh chicken eggs in my area go for $2.50-$3.00 unless you're at a farmers market. Should I price the duck eggs about the same? Less? [​IMG]

    Duck eggs are worth more down here. I've never seen them for less than 5 a dozen.

    How much do you see them at swaps?

    I've seem going for anywhere between $4-$6 at the local swaps here.

    Never been to a swap, I can't say. I've asked family if they would be interested, but they turn up their noses at the thought of duck eggs.

    You can check Craigslist to see if anyone is selling them locally to get an average price of what they are going for around you.

    Thanks, I'll do that. If I can't find anyone local selling them, I'll just price them about the same as chicken eggs, and go from there. Thanks for your insights.

    If no one else is selling near you then maybe it will help with the lack of competition :) GL!
