    Do a board search on the word "ocellated" and you'll find some info.

    I would expect them to be about 500.00 per egg since prs sell for 3,000.00 when available. I believe Virgil Bates in Fl. hatches some every yr. Its just not practical to sell/buy eggs from such rare and expensive birds. Its why you dont see folks selling Blackneck Swan or Pygmy Goose eggs etc.

    They are endangered and any hatching eggs would be illegal to buy.

    No they aren't, they are listed as nearly threatened, it's even legal to hunt them.
