I'm 7 months into my first year as a chicken owner. I have to admit that's it's been a great time and I really enjoy owning my flock. I started with 9 RIR pullets and 1 RIR rooster. The girls have done great ... the last 2 days I've collected 9 eggs a day ... that's 100% production ... so coodos to my girls.
Then I was sure there would be a demand for these eggs as they are just so much better than store eggs as we all know. So, I ordered another 9 chicks. Today, with the chicks just less than a month old I have them fully integrated with the older birds. They get to free range during the day. That's 18 producing pullets by next June. And they don't really cost much to feed.
The problem is that I can't find people who are interested in these eggs. Anytime I've given away a dozen they are grateful but as of today I don't have a single customer.
I don't understand it. But I'm not into traveling about trying to give eggs away, and I hate to see them wasted.
I need to get a plan for the future.
