Sold out!

post #1 of 8

I brought 2 dozen eggs to work yesterday for someone. Another person handed me a empty carton I told him Wednesday. Today I got an order for another dozen and someone else wants 6!
I think I need more chickens!

You probably do.

How much are you selling them for?

With all the laying hens that have been euthanized, the price of eggs has risen dramatically.

For the first time in history, the US is now importing eggs.

 

There was renewed interest in my eggs when the prices skyrocketed. I had been selling for $3 a dozen then last year I went to $3 for mediums and 4 for large thru jumbo. I still need to raise the price more though.

Now is the time to make money on eggs.

$4 a dozen I still see them in the store for less. I just started by giving a 1/2 dozen as samples to a handful of people at work and they must have liked them. I have 5 RIRs & 1 Wyndotte.

Wow! That's a lot of chickens.

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

6 is how many the town allows I don't think it's a lot specially since I don't seem to have a problem selling eggs!

It's not a lot of chickens. I'm concerned about cities that only allow 3 or 4 chickens.

I don't understand your point

3 to 4 chickens isn't enough for a home flock yet city councils want to make it difficult for people.

 

If a chicken dies and they want to add, they have to bring in a single chicken to an established flock.

 

3 isn't enough to provide eggs to a family throughout the year.
