Hello! I'm new to raising chickens, and started my flock in May of this year. I have 3 barred rocks, 4 golden comets and 4 australorps. I'm getting five eggs a day from them at this point. I'm thinking we'll be expanding the flock in the spring, so we're about to build a significantly larger coop than we have now in a couple of weeks.
I'm in central Indiana, and wondering what the going rate for fresh eggs by the dozen is here since we're getting close to having more than we will use at home. Any advice or input welcome....
Looking forward to learning a lot here!

HI!  :frow  Welcome!

 

Go to your state thread and see what the eggs are going for in that area.  Have fun!

Wonderful family, very understanding husband when it comes to chickens, dogs, birds, one big Golden Retriever, and thankful to the Lord for all!

Prices seem to vary quite a bit so your state thread is the best place to ask. Around here they usually go for $3 a dozen. It's no way to get rich but it all helps with the feed bills :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
