    I'm glad you have egg customers! Hope it goes well for you. Like you mentioned it helps offset feed costs anyway! Around here people wont pay more than $1.50 a doz. That's way too low. I just don't think they realize what it costs to feed them, besides the time involved otherwise I would think about selling them also.
    Glad to know someones making a go of it though!

    Quote:There were a few times I didn't one that was buying weekly lost my number and came over about 2 wks later inbetween that time I was louded so put add on Craigslist. Form that got a few customers but only one loyal one but she buys 4 dz a week, another one buys 3 dz ever other week and my neighbor buys 1.5 doz a week. I also had a few people stop from my sign out front but no real steady customers from it. I sell eggs, chicks and ducklings at the moment so far it has just been helping to pay for there feed and improvments to there pens or getting more birds I want. I can definatly live with that. There are allot of people out there selling eggs. Im sourdough surprised I get the $2 out of them since one town over people try selling them for $1dz that is way to low. Brown eggs in supermarket are 1.75 dz.

    I don't really understand why people wouldn't pay more for farm fresh eggs? Seems kind of odd! In the store I spend about 3.75/dz for brown, free range, organic eggs, and I know those poor birds' version of free range is that they get to walk around in close proximity in a giant, barely ventilated metal building. When my girls start laying I've already got customers at work, and I'm selling them for $3/dz, if not more. Of course, I've only got 7 pullets and a roo, so it's not like I plan on making bank. Maybe when my flock grows I could reach out to others and sell more. I'll see how it goes come this fall!

    I saw a posting on Craigslist earlier this year. Not sure if it is still there... If not, you could probably put a want out over CL.

    I saw that too. I may still have her number. She is pretty close, too.​

    Teddy, I still need to get some eggs from you. I have room for over 1000 eggs. Only cooking about 600 at the moment though...

    If there was any way I could get to JC this weekend I would take them. I really want them but the 80 mile drive kinda makes them too pricey for me.

    I am definitely not liking how these gas prices are curbing my chicken habit!!! The answer is always 'yes, I want to buy some chicks'. But the reality of my hobby expenses going way up is putting a damper on things. I'm even advertising 3 of my young Langshan hens as we have more eggs than we can eat. Maybe when both kids are out of daycare... Just 3 more years to go!
