Most of the people I read about here only have a few hens and raise eggs just for their household
I was wondering if anyone besides me is producing eggs to sell, I’m trying to get to the point of producing two to three dozen per day

Over the years on here, I've seen posts of others in exactly your situation.
I'm not strictly in the eating egg business.
Our eggs are for hatching - both here and by mail order, After that, they are for our eating eggs. Excess are sold as eating eggs.

I do but it’s just to help with the feed bill. I go up and down between 75 to 100 chickens, I might get 3 dozen a day when things are bad might get 6 or 7 dozen when they are laying well. All depends on the time of year
What breeds do you have. yes a lot of my egg selling pays my feed bill also

We're looking forward to selling a few. Different states and local governments have a lot of variation on rules to sell eggs so just be wary of that. Here in Spokane it's pretty easy if you don't have a large operation (3000+ chickens) and sell from your "farm". Good luck!
