    So my egg customers have recently quit buying because there is soy in my feed. soo now i am over run with eggs, but i have a friend who has a 1000 egg incubator and i figured i would put all these un sold eggs into it. Would any of you all be intrested in baby chicks? i could probably ship them if you want.

    Im not sure if i am going to do it yet or not. but i would take about anything for them since otherwise they are just going to turn into rotten eggs. idk where to find shipping prices?

    now I have to ask you... WHAT???

    what difference does it make that you feed some soy to your chickens that makes the eggs uneatable??? I would like to hear

    Quote:im not sure how they come up with the shipping price either. i guess by weight. so we would need to figure out how much a box would weight with about 200 chicks in the box. i dont think you could fit more than that in one box. [​IMG] maybe you could ask your post office. let me know. i dont care what breed or what you feed them. i would just like to have some more.

    The customers are part of an organic co-op. they believe that soy beans make girls mature earlier and have bigger breasts. also the believe that it makes men turn feminine. SO now they wont buy my eggs because of that. that.
