    What I have bought from BYC'ers in the past have been from $25.00 to $15.00. for a doz. and that includes extras...these were not Partridge Rock but Buff Orpingtons and Blue/Black/Splash Orpingtons...I just got an order of 8 eggs for $20.00 those were Blue/Black/Splash Standard Cochins.....hope that helped you....that includes shipping....and these were from "very" nice birds...this is usually range people charge for fertile eggs...

    Hope someone can help in the Partridge Rock....

    When you consider that shipping Priority that many eggs (breed notwithstanding) with proper packaging can sometimes cost over $13, then you add .75 to $1 per egg.. as a guideline. For example, to ship from where I am all the way in Washington State cost $13.45 or something close to that the first time I did it. I usually send about 16 eggs total, a dozen plus the extras I can almost always get. The shipping does not vary as much as the value of the particular eggs you're sending, I think.
