    Are you are having problems selling the eggs your chickens produce?

    No I just have a lot and want to get rid of them faster, but don't want to lower the price.

    Personally, I don't like gimmicks when it comes to selling high quality eggs.
    Straight up and honest pricing, (to me) is the best way to get, and keep, good customers.
    I am selling about 12 dozen per week now (will be much more when my pullets' eggs get bigger) and have a great customer base.
    Best wishes to you!

    I also don't do any bargains/deals/etc.

    I have given away the first dozen or half dozen to a new customer. I say I'm like your friendly neighborhood crack dealer--I'll give you your first hit for free to get you hooked, then reel you in [​IMG]

    Other than that, I just advertise more if I need more customers.

    I sell a lot of point of lay pullets, so I do on occasion give away eggs with if the buyer is purchasing several birds, especially if they aren't quite laying yet.

    ha ha ha ! you are hilarious donrae!
    I have done the same for potential buyers whom are not sure about buying "farm fresh eggs". (like farm fresh is a foreign concept??)
    I have 1/2 dozen cartons just for that reason. Good for business, no doubt!

    Thanks!

    I've found free eggs are a great ice breaker. And if someone's waffling on if they want them or not, it's no great loss for me to comp them a few.

    I forgot, I've also given bantam eggs to folks with little kiddos. We usually eat the bantam eggs, cause I don't want to mess with pricing, etc when they're so tiny. But when I run into someone who has toddlers, they often get a dozen eggs "just your size".

    YW!
    Jenna, is your "fresh eggs for sale" sign highly visible from the road?
    I've seen some folks around these parts using the tiniest signs!
    I know you wanted to sell your product faster and a good advertisement really helps!
