  • Eggs fresh from the hen within say two days? Organic? I'd pay $4 a dozen. Maybe $5. For delivery figure out the cost of gas and wear on the car. I might go up to $6 delivered. But more than that I'm not sure. If I got the eggs once and felt they were outstanding, I might go higher.

  • Around here we have sold ours for $2 some people thought it was a good price ..... some thought it was high. I have never delivered except to food pantries when I had two many, so never charged for that.

  • I buy them at the farmer's market for $3.50 for jumbo, $3.25 for x-large, and $3.00 for large.
    Delivered, I'm not sure. It may not be something you can charge enough to make up for once you figure in insurance, mileage, gas, etc.
