Just sold 4 dozen this week.
We also try to hold back enough for our needs and family who enjoy free eggs too. It's a balancing act but is working so far.
I have 11 girls laying now and 4 more RIR that should start laying anytime now. I actually think one or two of them are laying now because
I'm getting a few small eggs.
When the daylight got shorter my production went down until I started adding an extra three hours of light to the coop once it becomes dark.
That seems to have returned production to normal now, as we are getting 9 to 10 eggs a day from the 11 laying girls.
I also give my neighbor a dozen a week because our coop is 80 feet from his front door. He does't mind and enjoys getting the
Free eggs. He was also raised around chickens growing up and is a country boy like me.
I am new to having chickens even though I grew up going to my grand parents farm who raised about 100 chickens and sold eggs for $.10 a dozen.
I remember grandma answering her phone that was on a party line and taking orders for her eggs. One of my favorite memories of going to the farm and spending the night was being able to help grandma collect the eggs. i'm sure grandma is looking down on me with satisfaction.
