I went to town the other day....and when I got home, there was a car behind me...it slowed down...but went past the house. So I cam down the drive...and was getting out of my truck, when I see the same car, coming back down the road, and turned into my drive. I live out of town about 15 min...and DH was at work, so I tossed my purse back in the truck, grabbed my cell phone, and keys...and locked my truck. Then I realised...it was a woman, with 4 small children. She gets out and asks if I have eggs for sale....( I have a large 4ft x 4 ft sign in the front yard...with an OPEN sign hanging on it) So I go in the house, get her eggs, and when I come out, she is on the front porch....kids in tow. We exchange money and eggs...and the kids want to go see the chickens...so I tell them, they have to ask momma. Well, turns out, they are her grandkids! LOL So we go out there, and she points to the Turkeys and says " WHAT are THOSE huge things"?? I said..." ummm, Turkeys?" LOL So she proceedes to tell me, she sees a Holistic Dr, and he advised her to get fresh eggs, and meat locally, if possible...without hormones and all. She looks at me and asks if I use hormones on my birds? Ummm, no..I wouldnt even know HOW to! LOL So then she asks me if I sell "meat chickens" and wants to be put " on my list" if I do, for 12 of them. Hmmmm....I wasn't planning to sell the ones I DO get...I explained to her, I would have to get more info, on what the price might be for the meat birds. She said..." whatever you want for them, I will pay" Then wants to know if I will sell slaughtered turkeys in the fall...and how much? I told her I was thinking of trying to raise a few for meat...but wasn't sure...then she turns to me and sayd///if you want to raise them, and sell meat chickens, and turkeys....and eggs...between me and my friends who all go to this Doctor...we can keep you fresh out of supplies! So, IF I DO raise cornish cross..and turkeys for meat to sell ( I was only going to do enough for me and DH) How would I price them? Is $7.00 per chicken and $30.00 per Turkey( say between 12 and 15 pounds) a good price? Or am I hurting myself...or them?? Any advice??
