Our family started with chickens last year. We did not get the chickens as a money maker, but as a hobby so-to-speak. We started with four hens and are now up to 12 hens and a roo. We are averaging about eight eggs a day. We typically give the excess eggs way to family and a few coworkers. Again, did not start this to make money so we have never charged people for the eggs, we would enjoy the chickens just as much if they did not lay. About a month ago someone who works one floor up from me came down and asked about eggs. He is someone I have seen in the hall but never really talked to, I guess word spreads pretty fast about chickens and eggs. I just ran into him in the parking lot and he really enjoyed the eggs. He now wants to set up a regular egg purchase and is insisting on paying $4 a dozen. I was floored and just did not know what to say. I will be making my first real egg delivery tomorrow!
