Egg Sales

April 14th, 2015 at 08:05 am

On Thursday I sold 4 dozen duck eggs for $20 and then on Monday I sold 2 dozen duck eggs for $9. The second sale got a discount because she brought me back empty egg cartons. I discount 50 cents per dozen if people bring me back egg cartons because that is how much new egg cartons cost each. So $29.

I also gave away a dozen duck eggs and 2 dozen chicken eggs (some mine, some Mom's) to my neighbor's grown daughter (she's poor and super appreciative) and 18 duck eggs to my physical therapist on Friday.

The ducks are back in full production, giving me 5 to 6 eggs a day. The hens are starting to molt, so my four are doing 2 a day right now. We are still getting plenty for our own use. I also got 3 turkey eggs so far this week. They taste just like the chicken eggs. Not nearly as different as the duck eggs are from chicken eggs.

Once the novelty wears off of eating the turkey eggs I will sell them. I think I can get $4 for a half dozen.

I may also sell fertile eggs if anyone is interested. I'd like to incubate turkey eggs this year, but I don't think we can swing a really good incubator until next year. One day.

    If I lived close to you, I would totally buy your eggs!

    How does the weight of turkey eggs compare to chicken or duck? Seems you could price them at least as much per ounce as the per ounce price of smaller eggs, plus maybe a novelty royalty. Is there a known market price for them?

    Laura, are you able to leave your small animals home alone with food and water for a few days, or would you need someone to look after their needs? I'm kind of wondering if I could do a "Chicken-Sit" service for the increasing number of backyard chickens we see here.

    Apologies for the wrong name. Don't seem to be able to edit today.

    That's great you have plenty of eggs for both your family and to sell/give away!

    I'd love to see a photo of the three types of eggs next to each other!
