How much do you sell your quail eating eggs for?

Post by sarah.leggett on Sat Feb 02, 2008 9:35 pm

Hiya!

Haven't been on for ages so hello again.

I have japanese quail hatched form suz's eggs and we adore them Smile We are waiting for them to come into lay. I was wondering if anyone here sells their eggs for eating. I have a lady who said she loves quail eggs and will buy as many as I have available. BUT I don't have a clue how much to charge. How much are they in the supermarket? We sell our hen and duck eggs for 1 per 6 which I think we are going to increase to 1.20 since feed price has increased sooo much.

Eager to hear replies

Hi Sarah,

You can charge whatever people are prepared to pay for them. I sell 15 dozen a week to a local Chinese supermarket and I ask for 1.20 per dozen without egg boxes.( they sell them for 1.80)
I find this pays for all their food and lighting, shavings, grit etc. I don't make much money from selling them.

hi Sarah

So glad your quail are doing well.

Just checked on tesco online -

6 ducks eggs are 2.28, but couldnt' find quail eggs - pretty sure I saw them in tesco's for around 2 per dozen though. and my local butcher sells them for 1.60 per dozen

My nearest tesco that stocks them sells them for 2.49 a dozen normally, Ocado has them for 2.45. I did see them on a local market about a year and a half ago, I think they were 2.50 there. I must be in a pricy quail egg area Razz
