The yields of eggs of various categories from modern highly productive crosses of chickens (SP-789, Lohmann LSL Classic, Lohmann Brown Lite) were studied. The comparative efficiency of the egg sale by weight and categories, the development of a pricing methodology are discussed. It was found that for the considered crosses the first category is the modal class or the class of the highest frequency of occurrence. The average weight, the cost of 1 g of egg weight, and the new selling price of eggs of the first category practically coincide with the average values of these parameters of the general set. The most economically feasible is the sale of edible eggs by weight. However, it requires additional financial investments for the purchase, installation, and maintenance of weighing equipment. In this regard, the author has developed and proposed a methodology for determining the single-piece price sale of eggs of different categories, which makes it possible to increase the income of an enterprise as compared to selling eggs by weight. According to the new methodology the selling price of the first category eggs is taken as a basis for assessing the selling price of eggs of other categories. This value is multiplied by the coefficients for the corresponding categories, which are calculated by dividing the new price of eggs of each category by the new price of eggs of the first category. These coefficients should be developed for each specific cross, taking into account the duration of the productive seasons and the conditions of the farms.
