    there is a wanted section all the way down on the index


    Personal opinion is

    $3 is way too low ,for some breeds your not going to get many responces

    might have to pay a little more than $3 / dozen unless you find someone on craigslist that doesn't know they can get 15/doz for good hatching eggs.

    When my LFC Frizzles start laying, I'd be happy to ship, but not for $3 a dozen. My Sexlink mutts, maybe.

    I have duck hatching eggs for sale.
    Purebred khaki campbells, as well as mixed breed eggs. I also have some muscovy hatching eggs for sale if interested.
    They are $1.50 per egg, plus shipping.

    You can PM me if you are interested.

    I would suggest you increase price a good bit if you want to be taken seriously.

    I know I like a bargain too, that's my name, bargain, for BYC! [​IMG]

    But seriously our purchase ahead price for our Easter Eggers is $15 a dozen. Occasionally an auction for them will walk at a little over $12 a dozen. I sell eating eggs for $4 and up for chicken eggs - scrubbed and wash according to law and they won't hatch! Our duck eggs are $5 each. With some of our flocks, I have paid over $400 for a quad of NOT even full grown hens/roo. Many people on BYC have lots of dollars and efforts put into their flocks, to say nothing of the time and effort raising them, electricity of the brooder, time/costs making brooder and coop, and all that chick starter and chicken feed, water, etc.

    Even our white leghorns go for more that that a dozen.

    Now if you were nearby me and willing to work hard on my farm, i would exchange your labor for hatching eggs. I have done that with others. You might get a few takers but I would suspect many mutts or even worse, nothing would appear.

    Please understand I'm not criticizing you but want to share the realities of costs and prices. I know you are presently learning the system so I thought I'd put my 2 cents in. Have a blessed day. Hope this was helpful. Nancy
