    Hi everyone... Well I have some new Sebastopols that are the white curly ones with the ice blue eyes... They were bought directly from Holdereads show lines... Well now they are laying eggs and I was wanting to know if $10 an egg is a fair price... And where is the best place to sell my eggs and gosling? Thank so much guys...

    Quote:That's more than a fair price. I will be charging (probably) $12 to $15 per egg, depending on which pen they will be from...

    If you have ship goslings, please let me know--I'm always looking for another female (or two).

    Alot of people are selling on Ebay. One woman sold 6 eggs for $153. last week. The key is good pictures and start your bidding low. I start every single auction at .99. It starts a bidding war. Most auctions go for 3 days.

    I sell alot of duck eggs on Ebay. Last week I sold a dozen Pekin eggs for $26.53. This week they sold for $15.50.

    Good luck!

    I think you should charge about $3 per egg to a certain Nebraska fellow BYC, cuz I was thinking about buying some from you since your close and you have gorgeous birds and thats about THE most I can afford! [​IMG]

    I think that is a fair price..... be sure to take pictures in the fall when they are fully feathered. This time of year when they are breeding they don't always look their best.

    I just ran into a site where they are selling their Sebastopol eggs for $15.00 each. That may give you a ideal what to charge.

    sigh....

    Yup, from what I have seen, around $10 an egg is very reasonable. Guess I am gonna have to suck it up til I can afford some. They sure are beautiful birds.
