    not shore if this is posted in the correct category but anyways I get so many eggs from my chickens and I'm wondering if I can sell them. I live in Florida and I'm wondering if someone can tell me the rules and regulations on selling eggs small scale only?. if I can I would like to get a couple more hens so I can have enough eggs for me and still have enough to sell.

    I would look up your states agricultural regulations.

    I'm in Texas and registered agricultural exempt / ranch-farm owner, yet I don't sell my eggs. Understand your abundance, I give them away to friends & family - I get feed / fruit & veggies back in return . For me, it's a hobby - my good friend sells hers, she has to represent her organic free range eggs a specific way....that much I know,

    yeah I just keep chickens for a hobby but I just figure selling the eggs could help pay for feed and straw
