I have young geese laying for the first time. Can anyone advise how much to sell these for?
The eggs will be going for eating not breeding

Yes, agree with bj although you would get more than double that if they were hatching eggs if thats something you want to do

TBH, we found that except at Easter time, we couldn't give them away! I think the trick is to find customers who are really into baking.

I'm another who struggled to sell them-same with duck eggs, once people try them they are usually converted but for some reason people are often reluctant to try eggs from anything other than hens. The ones I didn't use myself I mostly gave away to someone I know who bakes a lot. I now have a dedicated duck egg customer base but it took a while!

Here they sell for £2 each (Leicester city market).

@lord flynn , a lady at my work used to buy hen's eggs every week, but refused to touch duck eggs, "because they came out of a duck's bum"  ??? .

pmsl, really people are quite weird.


On the other end of the scale I had a work colleague recently eat a duck egg I gave him back in early July lol, it had been in the fridge-he did the water test and one failed and one passed-he said they're too good to waste!

You could try spraying them with gold paint  :coat:

Several people were asking me to make sure I don't keep a cockerel with hens because they didn't want a chick when they crack the eggs...  ;D

Having tried them i wouldn't give a thank you for eating geese eggs, duck eggs yes much richer.

I usually give some to ladies who bake for local chapel, living away from tarmac road, I don't want to be walking a mile to the village to sell a couple of eggs.
I do know people who sell them for £1 each though.

In some countries most commercial eggs are white (from leghorns). Someone said when he moved here he didn't want to eat eggs because they are all so dirty lol
