DO you sell your eggs?

    I was over run with eggs and placed an ad online. SInce then...everyone has been calling me for eggs! $2.00 dozen. One guy today wiped me out! Everyone said that they would come back for more. Looks like I will need to get more chicks!

    I sell anywhere from 3-7 dozen a week. My girls pay for their own food. [​IMG]

    We usually end up giving ours away faster than we can sell them. A few teachers at local schools buy them every now and then, even though we don't ask for money! My mom gives them to family or we use them all ourselves.

    Where I live you can sell them off of your property without paying taxes on them. If I sold them off of my property I would have to charge sales tax and blaa blaa blaa.

    Where I live it is illegal to sell or trade eggs unless you are a poultry farm and all that goes with it.

    I sell eggs to a few people down here in the city. I break even on feed with sales of eggs and meat birds.

    With the ads and such I have a waiting list now. My next lady wants 3 doz by the end of next week. The girls are going to have to get some red pepper tomorrow to keep up!

    I sell my extras to a local health food store. They take as many as I can bring in--usually anywhere from 4-8 doz, depending on how they are laying and what we use for cooking.
    The hens are able to be treated a little more because they pay for their own extra goodies. [​IMG]
