Only sell hen eggs myself , but the going rate seems 1.50 round here for half dozen duck eggs gate sales.

1.80 per half dozen and I'm told I'm cheap - mine are still quite small though. Most people seem to charge 2 per half dozen.

I'd say it depends on your market. From the gate in your village might not get you such a good price as people at work might pay. (Call the extra a delivery fee if you feel that's not ethical)

Avoiding change makes life easier at a gate.

This is my feeling. It's a toss up between what people are willing to pay and how much loose change they have floating around.

1 - it seems that it is only really the older pensioners that buy them here and I can't bring myself to charge them more.
