    So from what I under stand you want to sell your eggs to a store.

    To do that you're gong to have to look up your local laws and regulations on egg sales. Every state is different. In our state you need to be certified if you are not selling directly off your farm/establishment. Personally I find it easier to sell direct to customers. Plus, stores don't pay much for a dozen of eggs.

    If you have a natural foods store, ours is a co-op, go to them and ask about selling eggs. Ours pays good because many people want local brown eggs. I am planning to see them when my egg production is good, they said they will tell me the paperwork necessary for the state. Another good option here is the Farmer's Market.
