LOL! Just thought of it and started a thread asking after I posted that Lol!
Well I could but I'd need to buy "egg shares" and a bunch of government crap I don't care to deal with... That's a province thing... My zoning does restrict how many animals I can butcher though...
I have to ramble about "giving away" v.s. selling eggs here. I don't have dozens of chickens, am not trying to make a living from my hobby. I like that when you "give" eggs away, you are not bound to be in a certain place at a certain time, or lots of other stuff that has to be done. I started giving eggs away to neighbors...folks I saw walking done the street exercising regularly here that I didn't even know. Friends in the neighborhood. Just considered it good will. To my surprise, I have received gifts in return I never expected, and I think probably in dollar value more than I could have gotten than if I had tried to sell my eggs. (Which is prohibited by ordinance here anyway.)
One person thought I needed a red flyer wagon and they had one they didn't use, and did I want to haul feed from the truck of my car to the coop? Another brought a bag of DE because I had told them I used that in an old panty- ho- leg and dabbed all the surfaces in the coop interior to keep mites from being a problem, and that I used it in the chicken's dust baths. It just goes on, pretty scarves as a souvenir when someone who enjoyed my eggs traveled. I enjoy giving them away, but I have been amazed at what it has brought me in turn that I never expected.
Rambling on....if you do live near a city where good stuff ends up on the street....don't pass up "little tykes" plastic play houses or other children's play containers...modified they make cute "tiny houses" for a trio of foul.
And to the person who said she was afraid to tackle cobbling something together herself...I have done it because I have had to, and it may not look pretty...may be laughable to a carpenter...but by gosh, you will be proud of it when you finish, and pretty or no, you will be surprised what you can do, and how it can function.
awe, now I feel all warm and fuzzy. Thanks for listening.
Walks in listening to black sabbath . Like watching people make excuses for there mistakes. Lol
I've had no personal dealings with ridgeway but everything I have read in the past 10 minutes has been very, very bad. Find a reputable breeder here on BYC and order chicks. Yes. You'll probably get cockerels, but at least they're pure!
Afternoon @buddy phoenix
How's everyone doing?
We s ow blowed the driveway again. Got to do our taxes this afternoon. Bleh. We should be getting money back but still hate doing them. The birds are at least enjoying the 30 to 40 degree weather!
hmmm, that's interesting. I'm glad I don't have those restrictions here. I'd be buying egg shares!
