    I have 30 or so India Blue peafowl and have been selling some to local people but recently received and e-mail asking if I would sell hatching eggs next spring. I said yes figuring it won't be any big deal but now I don't know what to charge for the eggs.

    My question is what do you normally charge or what have you payed for hatching eggs?

    Thank you!

    Here is a picture of 2 of my peacocks that are just getting their pretty feathers in:

    Handsome boys!

    I was also thinking of selling some and was going to ask $20 or $25 for them, but I'm not willing to ship them, too much work for this lazy person, lol.

  3. We don't sell hatching eggs because hatching is part of the fun for us. I have seen IB eggs go for $10.00 around here fairly often during the season.

    Hatching was lots of fun, but I only sold two of the 32, so I have way too many now, lol. Need to find a better way to sell chicks if I do it again next year.

    Maybe my mistake was in waiting and trying to sell them when they were a few weeks old. You sold your chicks when they first hatched, right?

    Sounds like my $20-$25 price for eggs might be too high, just not sure I want the hassle of trying to sell them for less, lol.

    Yep, they were gone gone gone within 24 to 48 hours.

    $20.00 is a little high but if you can sell them for that price, go for it.
