We have over 100 hens, maybe closer to 120 with the young ones that will get to POL in the spring, so hopefully we will be getting a lot more eggs per day when spring comes around.
My niece is in charge of prepping and selling the eggs, with all the proceeds going to her college fund. I like hatching chicks and selling them, and all that money is hers also. Her dad and I pay for the feed and other costs. I'm not sure we are at a break even point yet, even will all the labor "free". but I hope the sale of chicks and started pullets will mean she is saving more for college than the money spent for food and such. If not, at least it's fun.
that is so awesome!..win-win for everyone..anything towards the education fund is always a good thing!!
..sounds like your enabling intervention is going rather well!....
