How much are you selling your eggs for?
« on: January 29, 2017, 07:34:40 pm »
Well I sell my eating eggs at the gate for 1.50 for half dozen (1.00 for neighbours and friends) or 2.50 a dozen.

But since the lockdown my feed bill seems to have doubled!

What you selling them for?

1.30 for six at the gate, my feed bills have gone up considerably too since lockdown as I am buying cabbages and other greens for them as well as mealworms.

That's quite a variation! Would it help to have people say where in the country they are?

We are about to start selling (as soon as the hens start laying again) and we're thinking of doing 1.20 to 1.50 for a half dozen.

Rural Mid Wales. Sold at the gate. Hardly any passing traffic. Bought by neighbours. 1 per 1/2 dozen tends to be the going rate out here.

1.20 half dozen - Herefordshire.  Some of mine are a bit on the small size at present, as the POLs are only just coming in to lay.  I shall be increasing the price to 1.30 in March.  I don't sell in dozens.

1.30/half dozen, 2.60/dozen. My feed bill has remained the same though as my hens haven't been restricted on space (we netted their rentafence run with netting used to protect silage bales from birds) in fact they are laying better than ever as about a month before lockdown we tipped 2 tonne of woodchip in their run  :excited:

As far as I'm aware we can't sell as small medium, large or extra large unless we have the lion stamp. I did some reading about the rules when we started getting eggs last year. I'll see if I can dig it out.

Edited as I found it
