    2 Dozen today for $3.00/Dz. I got in early this morning about 7:05 and I swear there was one of my regulars at my door wanting eggs before I was able to lay down my stuff. I checked the prices here at the local Wal-Mart and they are getting $2.97 for their no-name brown, 'free-range', 'organic' large eggs. They are $3.97 for their EggLand's best and $4.47 for their Land of Lakes eggs of the same type. I'd raise my prices but I got a good thing going so I'm going to stay at $3.00 for now. I'll have another 11 started pullets coming in next week and they'll probably be laying before the first of July so maybe then.

    Sold 2 dozen and gave a 1/2 dozen egg sample to our computer guy's wife. She is leary of eating fresh farm eggs, so I offered to give her 6 so that she could try them out. We'll see what happens.

    Quote:Some people just don't want to know where their food comes from. I suspect this gal would be repulsed to learn that eggs come out of a chickens hinie. People like that just pretend that the food is manufactured in a plant or picked from a pristine garden. What woudl they do if they found out that someone put cow or chicken poop in their garden to grow the lettuce they were eating for lunch? Oh My!!!

    I agree. That's what I kinda told the computer guy. I asked him does she know where eggs come from. I told him that I hope that she doesn't think that eggs are made from some recipe made of different ingredients in a lab. I told him that the same eggs that she buys from Wal Mart come from a chicken from god knows where and god knows what they did to the poor chicken. He is at the office today and he picked up the eggs. He said that he has been trying to convince her to buy fresh eggs from me but she is scared. I'll keep you all posted.
