    Hello,
    So I was thinking it would be awesome if one of you Chicken Fanatics who has many different breeds, would start a Egg of the month club. People interested could pay like a $25 monthly due to you, and in return you send them 6 eggs to hatch, and every month would be a different breed. So lets say you have at least 12 breeds, so for a year you could send each member 6 eggs of a certain breed. Then we all can talk on the same thread about our experiences with the breed of that month! If somebody did this, even for only 6 months or so, I would be the first to sign up! Any Takers?

    I thought so, and it would be good money for whoever decided to start it, just getting ten people to do the club for one year each @ $25 a month would bring in $3000 a year, minus shipping costs of course. And I'm sure if somebody had the eggs available they could get way more than ten to sign up! [​IMG]

    Also you could maybe throw in Duck or Quail eggs for one month if you had them. Just a thought if someone had more than just Chicken Eggs!

    Lots for a potentail seller to keep track of and people to contact if something happens and your hens stop laying.

    You'd be able to do basically the same thing by buying a different breed each month from sellers who post them for sale.

    I have several different breeds but wouldn't want the headache that would go along with something like that.

    I may. If you can, don't get to sad or excited yet. Let me have a few days to see if I can iron out some of the details and get the needed paperwork and computer programs together. You are correct though. it would/will be great fun.

    If you could make it work, that would be awesome, but if not I completley understand! And you know, even if for some reason the hens decided to stop laying for a month, I'm sure everbody would understand, you could just apply their monthly dues to the next month. But if you have enough breeds to pull the club off, I wouldn't think they would all stop laying at the same time, would they?[​IMG] Anyway, give it a thought. Thank you for Considering! [​IMG]

    My SIL sent me to check this out. Between us we probably have over 600 birds. She thinks this is doable. If there is enough interest we could try it. I think there would need to be ten or twelve minimum willing to commit to a three month trial. If that goes well we could extend it and offer a discount to the original members. If it doesn't we end at three months and no one's feelings get hurt.

    Quote:I would be happy to Sign Up as your first member. If I were you I would start a New thread, titled something like "Egg Of the Month Club Looking For members" to see if you can get enough people together. Let me know if/when you start it up! I hope it works out, i think it would be so much fun.
