    Do you sell your duck eggs by the dozen, or does anyone sell a "pound cake pack" (5 eggs)?

    How much do you sell your duck eggs for? I sell my chicken eggs for $3/dozen.

    BTW... all of my family is in love with my duck egg pound cakes. The duck eggs have made the pound cake better than my grandmother's! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Most people that I know sell them by the dozen or 1/2 dozen.

    I use my duck eggs for all of my baking also [​IMG]

    generally I sell them for about $2 an egg for hatching (often less) packing them is the biggest issue for me since they are big and weigh so much I usually use the large flat rat box for any more than 12.

    the pound cake package is a greaqt idea but why not make it 6 since one can always drop on the floor or have a blood spot or some other thing...

    I would sell them for at least $3-$4 a 1/2 dozen.

    I can't even give away my duck eggs! Seriously! Even the food bank clients won't eat them.

    Luckily the girls seem to have slowed down for the winter.

    We sell ours for $3/dozen, but 1 lady insists on giving us $4/dozen [​IMG] Not complaining. She says she would much rather pay that then buy them from the store.

    I was worried about how they would taste, but had read about how good they were for baking. Then, I cracked one & it looked all snotty & I was worried again:) But they make baked dishes terrific:) I am tempted to sell a 6 pack for $3 and see how they sell. I have seen them for $6/dozen at the farmer's market & I donate .50 of each package.
