    what state do you live in? also what kind of breeds are you looking for. i have a ton of silkie eggs hatching out. from my own of course. will have some others later on.

    edited to add for those who i have bought from. im not counting the eggs i bought for myself only what my hens have laid lately. lol thought i better clarify that.

    I doubt you have many takers at only $3 per dozen for purebred eggs. [​IMG] $3 would hardly pay for the materials needed to wrap them for shipping.

    wow 75 dozen is a lot of chicks if they all hatch out
    i think spring would be the best time when laying picks up since its winter laying has slowed im pretty sure for a lot of people. good luck on your hunt

    Quote:That's what I am thinking. Might want to offer a little more per dozen. It would also depend on what breed, some are higher than others.

    Yup, most that sell pure hatching eggs from their breeder birds online here start at 25.00 a doz. and upwards depending on breed and that does not include shipping charges!! Good Luck!!!

    Hi, I'm not sure where you are but I'm doing an 8 dozen to be picked up special for a gentleman on Monday.....But my price is $8 a dozen and that is way below my normal price. This is a winter special since our local Farmers Market and CSA is closed for the season where we sell the majority of our eggs. If you are willing to come to West GA for a pickup I'll do the same for you. Please pm me if you are interested. This would need to be an 8 dozen or more order to keep at this low price and it will be a limited time offer as Farmer's Market will sart again in Feb. and we will also be hatching eggs on the farm for our use and local sales... In order to reserve eggs, we need to get a prepayment in paypal and/or a USPS money order.

    The packing materials, the way I ship cost far more than 3 dollars per dozen, so I certainly can go no lower in price.

    Have a blessed Christmas.

    I suppose there's never any harm in asking, but that IS a tall order. What are you going to do with all of them?
