April 28 is the Chickenstock in NC!
I am going up as I have had many preorders so I am delivering eggs and birds.
I am not in the market for much as I am tired of the table egg selling. By the time I wash, carton up, label and use all my fridge space for eggs I have very little profit to help use for the grain bill. I keep taking new customers but they have to wait on eggs if I run out before they can get them. I have given up most markets and restaurants because the pay back is ridiculous! Especially with gas prices now. I almost fell over when my Accountant showed me the break down from the past 2 years. So now it is pick up from the farm by appointment only. So far, so good!
I am still hatching out chicks and ducklings and most are spoken for so I get to keep very little as of yet. I am taking orders of those up to Chickenstock, too. Along with hatching Guinea eggs (those buggers lay like mad!), duck eggs and chicken eggs.
I hope you all can join us at the Chickenstock as we had such a blast last year! So many new friends and lots of chickens to look at and buy! The raffle was great and there were even a lot of chicken tractors for sale along with some cages and little hutches.
And though I say I'm not looking for anything else, I think I am head over heels for Porcelain Silkies. I adore my chicks from Bat Cave Silkies! They are so beautiful! I am sure I will be poking my head in to see if she brought more.
