My city changed their laws... - Page 2
Wel, here 5 dozen eggs from thw grocery store is $15 and i have to buy 5 dozen every week so thats $60 to 75.
I spend the same on feed for the chickens, ducks and turkeys to feed them each month. I made their coop out of chicken wire and pallets that were given to me. So technically its the same amount of money for me each month for more eggs from my hens. And once a year i have a chicken sit on about 15 eggs to hatch, and we sell them to locals. I get 8-10 dozen eggs per month.
5 dozens for $15 ? really? that's the price of eggs in the city ?
eggs are pretty cheap around here..
if i have time i'll post a picture.. it's on my phone.. if they fixed the problem with uploading pictures via mobile on this website..
As for the other, if the code department says you can't have them, are you positive the law was ok to have chickens in your area from the get go? I ask because around here, we have rural areas that code says no livestock (which they include poultry) but no one would ever know there was no livestock because all the neighbors have chickens and it's sort of just poorly (not at all) enforced.
I have been looking to buy a home where they allow chickens anyhow, so if push comes to shove, i will do so. I want the flock to have more area for themselves anyhow.
I'm in phoenix az (maricopa county)
nope.. i couldn't find it
i guess i deleted from my phone
i'll take a picture of it again when i have the chance (or if i can find it)
a dozen is around is under $1 around here
organic/free range is around $5-$8 a dozen
you know EB eggs.. they stated on the box that their chickens are "vegetarian fed hens"
winco has their eggs for $3.66 for a dozen (caged eggs).. their cage free are even more expensive.
you have hickman's egg in your area right? i heard they are planning to open more factory farms in arizona..
even costco stores have hickman's eggs- they are pretty cheap

not many people can buy in bulk like you would..
5 dozens at a time is too many
you bought the eggs from a warehouse? (costco, sam's,etc.) since the local supermarket stores will not sell them in such large amount (at least the stores i visited)
i have to double check
smiths? i don't know this one
we do have safeway, albertson, basha, fry's, sprouts, wal-mart, wincos, etc..
eggs are only good for about 20-30 days after purchase right or maybe less?
backyard eggs probably longer?
