    Most of the prices I see for selling quail eggs are from several years ago. I'm curious how much everyone is getting for them today? Also wondering how much it varies from area to area.

    We sell our eating quail eggs for 2.50 I believe? Our larger chicken eggs for 3.50 and bantams for 3.00 :) South Washington State!

    For hatching or eating eggs? Hatching eggs for Coturnix (no matter the colour) I pay about $1 an egg with shipping. I do not sell many eggs but get $2.00 a dz. they is no demand for them where I live. I see eating eggs sell in other parts of the us for $4 a dz.

    I'm curious about both. It seems the going rate for hatching is around a dollar an egg. The eating eggs seem to vary greatly.

    I'd probably also do $1 an hatching egg but I'd stay at a firm 2.50-3.00 for unfertilized eating eggs :)

    I sell fertile quail eggs for $6 a dozen, eating eggs $5 a dozen or wholesale to restaurants for $3.50 (no packaging).
