The Price of eggs

August 6th, 2015 at 09:35 am

Are eggs high in your area? I just paid $3.95 for a dozen large eggs.
Dh has an egg for breakfast almost everyday. He gets up early and fixes himself a big breakfast before he goes to work. He takes his lunch, but he tends to eat light during the day. (especially during this heat) I myself, eat cereal about an hour after I get up. $3.95 seems high to me, but I guess everything is high these days! I can't believe that I spend almost $100 a week for just two people. (in groceries)

    That does seem high to me. I believe we pay 25-30 cents an egg for free range ones at the co-op, which I would assume are more expensive than industrially produced eggs. And we're in a big city where prices are usually higher. But I guess I haven't bought many eggs in the past few weeks, so maybe those have gone up as well.

    Egg prices have been skyrocketing due to an avian flu outbreak in the Midwest. Around 48 million chickens died or were killed, which is about 10% of the production base. No new cases have been found since mid-June, so hopefully prices will stabilize, but the dire predictions are that if the flu returns this year, egg prices could soar to $6+ per dozen.

    Egg prices have been increasing due to the bird flu. Ours have been increasing almost every week.

    Egg prices are pretty high and will likely be going up as they continue to try to control the outbreaks in the big factory farms. You might consider having your husband build a little chicken coop and a run and keeping 3 hens for eggs (they are flock creatures so 3 is a good number). Chicken feed is pretty cheap and it is actually cheaper to keep chickens than to buy eggs. Plus they will eat all your scraps like peelings from vegetables and fruits, apple cores, watermelon rinds, and seeds. They will also eat a lot of weeds and cut grass. They are simple to take care of, not much more work involved than with any pet. Plus the eggs taste so much better fresh. My mom started keeping chickens at age 70 and she loves having them around and still keeps up with them easily at nearly 76.

    WE did keep chickens when I first got married, but they are not allowed in our subdivision.

    Oh, too bad. Sometimes you can challenge those rules if you get enough of your neighbors who are on your side. But you really have to want to do it, then.

    We're paying more for eggs and everything else... our grocery bill is definitely higher than it has been. Frustrating. And I'm watching our meal planning more closely... putting in fruits/veggies on sale as the basis of our meals.

    Last week when I was at the grocery store they were all out of the 1/2 dozen cartons of eggs - which is what I normally get since I don't go through eggs very fast. So I
    had to buy a dozen .. cheapest dozen was $2.99.

    4.99 a dozen here and that is for the store brand.
