    white chinese geese, and they are selling on local harvest for way more than 1 dollar per egg. Some people charge 60 for 6 eggs. I was thinking 15. the eggs are HUGE.

    Are you selling them for hatching, eating or crafts? That would make a difference. If for hatching, then it would matter what your geese look like. Are they nice quality, etc. Alot also depends on the demand in your area.

    I sell them for eating and I ship them all over the US. They are all beautiful and clean and in great condition.

    I bought a couple Cotton Patch goose eggs for $20 EACH! Of course Cotton Patches are REALLY really rare so it really depends on what breed you're selling. I got mine from Flip Flop Ranch.

    I have Danish geese - beautiful white and sweet. I am in love [​IMG]. They have started laying and having them only for 4 months now I really don't know what the price of their eggs should be. Only 2 of us to eat and I also have 10 chickens @ 1 egg each a day -- way too much for us. I am selling the chicken eggs at 2.50$ a dz. Oh and I live in Manitoba, Canada. I was told that they would not lay till the spring. Oh well, big surprise. I have 4 eggs in 3 days... We will eat 2 for supper tonight but would really like to have opinions on how much I should charge for them. They are white so can be used for food and art as well. Size wise they are about the equivalent of 3 or 4 large eggs.
    thank you for your help,
    Diane

    I sell them for 5 each. They are a rare and unusual item for most people and I have seen prices much higher than that.
