    my dad will be selling baby chickens soon in next Spring, and he will be selling fresh eggs![​IMG] But the hens are still too young to lay eggs, and we haven't bought enough chickens. But if you live in the New England area and are looking for fresh eggs to buy, then post below if interested. This is my dad's first time selling eggs.[​IMG]
    The hens that will be laying the eggs are Red Stars and Buff Orpingtons. We expect that the Buff Orps will be great mothers! They are fed with all natural cracked corn and laying mash. and there are no pesticides! Just fresh, home made eggs. post any questions if you like, and I will be sure to answer them. Thank you![​IMG]

    my dad may sell the eggs for $1.00 per dozen.[​IMG]

    ok, well, maybe $1.50 is better? we don't really care about the price much, because we get along fine when paying for feed. we haven't been selling eggs yet since we had chickens last year because we started with two hens and some roosters, yet we still bought food and everything![​IMG] But, ya, I agree, with such high quality eggs as these ones, they should be high priced than $1.00.


    ALSO: The egg's sizes are about medium to large. some are too big to fit in the cartons we have for large eggs!!!:eek:

    $1 a dozen is too little for home grown eggs.

    Quote:I agree. That won't even come close to covering the feed bill.
