    Cool beans....it's fun when you finally start paying yourself back for all the feed and stuff....
    I had it figured the first time I sold a dozen that it should sell for $432 to break even.
    It's tough finding buyers at that price.....

    I sold my first 2 doz. yesterday, actually my wife did to a co-worker. What's everyone getting per dozen, I sold mine for $2.00 each dozen. Too much too little? The nice thing is he wants 1 dozen every week.

    I haven't sold any yet, but am considering putting an 'honor stand' at the end of my driveway. I stayed with a friend in Ohio to do some trail riding this summer, and her neighbor had one of those, which I thought was a great idea.

    For now, I'm so jazzed about having eggs, that I'm giving away dozens of them to everyone I know--the vet got a dozen yesterday, as did some co-workers, two dozen to a good friend--I won't ever have any to sell if I don't quit giving them away! [​IMG]

    I sold mine for 2.00. My husband said 2.25 with the carton or 2.00 if they bring their own. She was thrilled with the price and brought her own carton. I gave some of the smaller and not as pretty looking ones to my sister. I mentioned the price and she said, "geez that's kind of expensive you can get them in the store for less than that." I thought it was pretty reasonable and was surprised that my own sister balked at it.

    Editing to add I GAVE them to my sister, not charged her and she still compalined about the price and I don't think she even said thank you now that I think about it. Hmmmmm
