We have Barred Rocks, around 50 of them, that started laying just a couple of weeks ago (at 17 weeks of age). Each day it seems like we are getting more and more eggs. Today we got 34 eggs . We decided to put a sign in our front yard, on a fairly busy county highway a couple of days ago and we still have not had anyone stop to buy eggs.
We have permission from a neighbor to put a sign in his yard also (he is on the same county highway at the corner with a State highway) with a sign pointing in our direction and the mileage (only a half mile). We haven't done that part yet, because we didn't think the girls would be producing this many this quickly.
I have considered going to the local farmer's market, but I hear they are very strict about the temp you keep the eggs at. (I'm open for suggestions as to how some of you guys accomplish this).
Any other suggestions? I've considered having a sign made to put on a window on my vehicle, but then I would always have to eggs with me and again the temperature thing comes in to play.
I thought about having a shirt made, but that might be going a bit far.
Help!!!! I need to get these eggs moving!!! By the way, how long can I keep the eggs in the frig before I can no longer sell them as "fresh".
THANKS for all the help this website has given me to this point. I wouldn't have made it this far with out all of the suggestions and insight you all have to offer.
