    The fellow that asked me to put some Call Duck eggs in the bator has a bunch of extra eggs. He asked me what would be a good price to sell them for, so of course I said: "Let me ask those who know,, BYC". He said he has 8 or so at the moment,, he dropped some,, but what would be a good price for him to ask for them? I'm assuming he means for hatching.

    Well, it depends on the color really. Whites go for alot, about 25$ for 6+

    ive seen them for as little as 1-$2/egg way up to 6 eggs/$25. It depends on the color ans some buy depending on the parents size also....

    I've passed on the info, I hope he decides to sell them, I'm out of room in the bator and I really don't want them anyway. I've heard they fly away unless you do something severe to their wings?
