    I have 12 hens that are laying and haven't been able to eat a fresh egg in months. I'm selling them before they get laid. At first I was wondering how to make egg selling pick up. Now it's booming. I love it, trying to build a name as a seller and also breeder. But reason I posted was wondering if there is anyone like me on here that sells eggs faster than the girls lay and ain't able to eat your own eggs. So I do without. I refuse to eat store eggs.

    I only had 3 last year. Now I got 39 and 42 eggs on my bator. The prob is over half of
    my flock isn't laying yet. But spring I should be loaded with eggs.

    The only way to get more eggs, is to get more chickens! [​IMG]

    I haven't eaten a single egg my girls have laid. I have them all sold before they're laid too. Waiting for my youngest batch to start laying. Probably won't be until March or April!

    Just remember that trends reverse and that a majority of the people here seem to have the opposite problem. Meeting the demand now may be the key rather than not having excess supply in the very near future.
