So when perusing this site you often see people refer to the eggs they get from their backyard flock as free eggs while others say that it's very expensive (but totally worth it) to get the backyard eggs over store bought. Here's how I feel about it. I have received 3 eggs from my girls. Two last night and one about 10 days prior. That first egg is the one that cost me about $1500 or so bucks (maybe more, I'm too scared to actually add it up). However, Eggs 2 and 3 were free! Woohoo! If you had told me a year ago that I would be happily spending $1500 on ONE egg, I'd laugh in your face, but it was so worth it. Now I'll continue to enjoy my FREE eggs from here on until I have to buy another bag of feed. Then it's $6.50 for that next egg and free ones until I need to buy a new bag which I've been on the same one for over a month and a half now with 13 chickens and it's still over half full. Thank GOD for free ranging! Anyway, that's how I justify all this crazy obsession of mine. How much did YOUR fist egg cost?
