I think $2.75 is affordable
@Cherry234 Pretty much now eggs do have good proteinsometimes I get a craving for pickled eggs and beets
brown eggs since they're more expensive than white eggs
I would imagine anything over 3$-4$.

I don't think $3.50 is that expensive. I think expensive is $4 and $6 is very expensive
Right... Most of the time when you see $3.50 it is for the more upscale brands. So $3.50 isn't that bad now that I think of it.
Okay so that's about $6.24 and $4.16 in US dollars (I used a unit converter). Yeah that is expensive. Even $4.16 is kind of expensive for a normal price
I mean you can get really cheap eggs but I've never bothered to look.
I wouldn't bother with really cheap eggs. They're most likely the conventional battery cage type
Yes, eggs are quite different in the UK to the US, I didn't really like the eggs when I lived out in the US. Most of your eggs are bleached and none of ours are. The benefit is that we don't have to keep eggs in the fridge.
Oh wow I didn't know that
All of our eggs are the colour they were laid, they don't go through a cleaning bath so the outer cuticle of the shell is still there to protect the egg from bacteria. We get various different colours, I buy Cotswold Legbar free range eggs and they have blue shells and a beautiful deep orange yoke.
Okay that's really interesting
Oh ok. I didn't know that. I'm learning so many new things. Do you live in Alaska?
Nah my friend lives there currently short term. everything is more expensive there compared to the rest of the states.
Oh ok I see
I mean one dozen of eggs
The price gap between white eggs and their more expensive brown cousins isn’t due to simple aesthetic preferences. And it’s not because brown eggs are somehow more nutrient-rich or lower in cholesterol either. In fact, brown eggs are no healthier for you than white eggs at all.It turns out that the higher cost of brown eggs has to do with how the eggs are formed within the hen. All eggs get their start within a hen’s single functional ovary when it is released as a yolk. The yolk is then carried into the infundibulum, the first part of the oviduct.If a hen mates with a rooster, this is where fertilization takes place. If there is no sperm present here, the yolk then journeys on to the magnum, where the albumen (what we commonly call the egg white) is formed around the yolk. After one more stop in the isthmus, where further membranes are deposited around the albumen, the egg advances to the uterus.Your guide to alternative kinds of milk like almond, coconut, and even bananaA hen’s uterus is also called her shell gland pouch. This is where all of the hardenings happens. Over the course of a 24-hour stay here, the shell is created around the soft innards of the egg in a process that sees layer after layer of white shell effectively "painted" on by the gland pouch. The eggs spend the longest amount of time in this stage by far.Once the shell is formed, a white egg-laying hen will experience uterine contractions, and eventually lay the egg. But for hens that lay brown eggs, there’s an additional step before the egg can be released.You see, all hens create white eggshells in the shell gland pouch. The inside of a brown egg is, after all, a pristine white. But hens who lay brown eggs undergo a paint job of sorts in the final hours that the egg sits in the shell gland pouch.
On average, the price for a dozen eggs will range from as low as $2 to as high as $6 per dozen. The price will depend on the brand, the market conditions, the type and the store you purchase it from. The cheaper eggs, which are those that come from hens that are caged, are mass produced by corporations and are considered non-organic, can be anywhere between $1 to $3 per dozen.Free range, organic, pasture raised and/or non-GMO eggs, the most expensive option, can cost $3 to $6 per dozen if they aren’t on sale. As the size increases, the prices can go up as well.
Brown eggs are the same as white, it just depends on the chicken breed.
@DaveToo Thank you for your comments. This is very informative
Well you would be surprised what some people whose wife is infertile will pay for some good eggs.
Is that for cage free eggs or organic or free range?
Ok. That's not too expensive for organic eggs
It's normal. The cheapest sale price of the store brand organic eggs is $3.50.
I know it's expensive compared to $1.25/dz, but we don't eat eggs too often.
Ok I see. I'd rather eat cage free/organic/free range instead of those conventional battery cage eggs. They're the worst
Yeah that is VERY expensive. Who would pay that much?
Some eggs are gourmet like quail eggs or chicken eggs fed a special diet of seaweed and crickets
Oh ok I see
Sheesh that's so expensive. My mom said the same thing
