    Where did you donate the eggs? What breed of chicken did you end up with?

    Yep, I did. I got a golden buff pullet and donated the eggs to our local food cupboard, the Center of Hope.

    I posted a similar question stone_family 3 and it sounds like alot of people get the golden buff aka red star,red sex link,golden comet...I was told by Meyer that they try to give you a layer if your order consisted of layers...and meaties for meat bird orders. Usually any food pantry/homeless selter will gladly accept eggs! I would think especially fresh ones!!

    If you are still unsure of who to donate eggs to, you can always ask a teacher (or somebody at a school) if they know of any kids that need eggs.

    Churches also frequently know of families in need.

    I got one 2 yrs ago, it was a Golden Buff, and during the Spring & Summer I donate the eggs to our local Meals on Wheels food pantry. They are very happy to get them and I feel great about donating to such a good cause.

    Thanks everyone, I asked at church if I could donate the eggs and they said yes! I might have to order a few extra layers just to make sure there are enough extra eggs to share :)

    I got one with my order of chicks this year. I already work with a produce co-op I'm a part of. Each month we donate a produce box to a family in need and I've been donating eggs to go with it. Now I'll have a chicken just for that purpose. I also liked the idea mentioned above about asking at your local school for a family or families to donate to.
