    When someone wants to buy your eggs, do you have them call you or do you have a frig out back that customers can just go and help themselves and leave the money in a box or something? [​IMG]

    I have it set up so they come into my work on Friday's and pick them up. I work at a Senior Center and most of my customers are here already...fellow employees and seniors! Works out great for me.

    I just sell to family and friends, so they just let me know.

    Most of my customers come to my door. I put my phone # on the cartons and tell them to call in the future so I can make sure I have as many as they want (several customers have wanted 5+ doz at a time).

    I have an ever other week rotation, one week I sell the eggs to my co workers here at school and the other week I sell to a butcher. For my coworkers its a simple "hey I need eggs" and I bring them in as soon as I get some. I sell my eggs for $2 at school and a butcher has offered me $4 a dozen. I didn't start raising chickens again for money but since I started really selling eggs I have pretty much paid for the 400lbs of feed that I bought last month. I will most likely be getting more chicks this spring to keep up with my demand. As far as giving to family and friends they have to "order" eggs now that we are selling every dozen we get.

    I bring them regularly to work . . . about 3 dozen a week. They actually fight over them because it's first come first serve.

    I think I may back off though because they seem to get upset if you don't bring any in that week.

    I sell mine for $2.50 a dozen and they are fairly large because the hens that produce the eggs I sell are Red Stars.
