    I sell mine for two dollars a dozen and three dollars for eighteen. Some people say I should raise the price, but I haven't since I started selling. Happy selling![​IMG]

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Each area of the country is different really. We get anywhere from $3.00 a dozen to private customers to $6.00 a dozen to the health food stores around here. This is for eating eggs only. Here is a thread on selling chicken eggs that may be of some help to you...https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/375223/free-range-egg-prices

    Always check with your city laws before selling eggs to business as you may need a license.

    Enjoy all your egg selling adventures and welcome to our flock!

    I sell my non-fertilized eggs for $2.50-$3.00 a dozen, though my dad's secretary bought two dozen for $7.00 to help me out. Fertilized eggs I plan on selling for $10.00 a flat plus shipping fees if ordered out of state. I should really start talking with our health food store about selling my eggs to them.
