    I have some of my bbred eggs in my bator due to hatch Sunday.....
    Here's my question...........I would like to offer for sale some of these eggs here for anyone interested. Now how would I determine a price to charge for these eggs? These are from the standard bbred game birds. Any suggestions? How do you all determine how much to charge on your eggs? [​IMG]

    I dont know much about it , But I would think you could do many things , go look at what everyone else sales theres for and try to be conpetitive or just pick a price you are happy with and go for it and see how works . Goood luck

    take into consideration your feed, how much they sell as chicks and try to be cheaper. Also depends on your lines if they are from good stock see what others are offering. Another plus for buyers are to include shipping in the total price.

    You could list them on the 24 hr auction thread and see what you get...you can even set a starting price if you want.

    The easiest way is to charge what you want for them, its your product. If people buy them then its good for you, if nobody buys then try lowering it til they do. Everyone has different ideas of what they want. What would you pay for them? There is no set price.
