I have people lined up who will buy my eggs from my 7 hens. I predict over 200 eggs a month from them, and I will sell around 12 dozen of them and keep the others for eating, giving away or trading. I will need another fridge and that costs electricity, too. The 12 dozen eggs I sell will sell for 48 dollars. Feed costs around 20, and gas for getting the feed and other expenses still leavs around 20 a month profit. Should I get another 4 hens and sell another 12 eggs a month dozen that way? Is it worth it? Should I just let it go at 7 hens? I don't want to eat them or kill them! I don't want to raise them for show or selling hens. Maybe I will have chicks but my roosters and hens are not the same breeds, and the chicks will be mixes. Maybe that is not a positive thing. I donno! These are myown quesitons, but there are all sorts of aspects to raising chickens for which there may be good experience based tips!
