Why have eggs gone up to $2 a dozen? Have I missed something? :badmood:
Some Of The Store Around Here (michigan) Have Been Advertising Them For 79 Cents A Dozen.
Normal white eggs?
Picked up 18 for $1 this past weekend, no increase in my area.
Of course organic, natural, free range eggs in the store run about $2- $3 a dozen.
Thats what I pay for Hatching Eggs, Eating eggs are less than A buck. But I try to but them As little as possible. When I do. Its A carton of 30 small. and the cost is about $2.00 a carton.
Time to start growing your own! They are much better for you anyway, check it out!
Natural, free range eggs from a neighbor are $1/doz. Store egg are less than $1, I think.
Here in Kansas, eggs ARE $2 a dozen! The sale eggs for 77 cents were all gone.
My birds are still moulting, and I await their laying with breathless anticipation!
Feed prices are going up, so probably sending egg prices up. However, around here most folks free-range. Farm eggs recently went from $1/doz to $.75/doz.
No money in eggs... best to eat them yourself and use them as tokens of goodwill with the neighbors.
Grocery store eggs were 50 cents around here not too long ago.
My first thought was "Hasn't everything gone way up?".
Store eggs have gone up around here too. The cartons that were about $2 are now about $6. It must be a regional thing. :shrug:
Eggs have gone up in Nebraska also. Around $1.50 a dozen. Although Sunday I picked up a couple dozen eggs at Walmart. They were only 65 cents a dozen. I only have a few hens left after a predator raid this summer so I only am getting 1 egg every other day.
Hmmmm - In our local store in Nebraska, they've got a sale going this week.
18 large eggs for $1 - limit of ten cartons
I saw people with shopping carts full of egg cartons - that's 180 eggs. What in the world are these folks going to do with 180 eggs?
Don't know what the stores charge, but I get $2.75/dzn for mine. They get resold for $4.75 at the produce stand or $6 when they take them to Seattle.
were they teenagers???
I pay $4/dozen for organic eggs from free-range grain-fed hens from the grocery stores or $2-$3 per dozen for "eggs" from the locals. I'd rather have the fresher local eggs but who knows what they feed or how the animals are kept.
Egg prices here have been pretty stable over the past 7+ years or so...
This morning they were 1.79 a dozen at Target then I went to Cub for buy 1 get 1 stuff and they were 2.00 a dozen. At least MN still has better gas price than some states.
eggs are so low its not worth the wear and tear on a hens butt
As for commercial eggs, you get what you pay for. Cheap eggs out of poorly fed, short lived hens. Pale yellow yolk and runny as the day is long. No thanks! lol
Our hen eggs have orange yolks and when you crack one in the pan, there it stays. Healthy eggs from healthy (and spoiled and demanding) hens. They laid almost as well at 6 years of age as they did at 2.
BTW, free-range doesn't mean much. Just means that they supposedly have more room than the poor battery cage hens. Could mean 50,000 hens in a big barn.
I won't go back to the cheap eggs.
A while back I knew an egg distributor who geared up for Haloween almost as heavy as Easter.
Nice convential $2.79
Organic/pastured $6.00 We were selling out the first hour of the market for $5
