  4. It's awesome to see it come full circle or almost, when I finally get to hatch some it will be complete.

    I charge $2 a dz. It's the going rate around here, which is fine. I will also donate to whomever is in need when all 27 are laying. As of now we have 7. Just got a new egg today!

    It should be rapidfire now as all are same age and at point of lay. Just in time for *powdered sugar* or shall we say cold weather precipitation?

    Oh and the $$$ went into dd pocket. She is celebrating. So much for framing her first dollar earned as a business owner. LOL

    I put out a sign recently, and have been selling all the eggs my girls produce. It doesn't help that they've cut way back. 15 girls have been giving me 4 - 5 eggs/day. So, last night I gave them a light set to go on at 5:30 AM. The thanks I get? Got 2 eggs today!

    Congrats!!! Love that feed money!

    Course you do know that supplemental light can take weeks to have an effect......and is best to increase slowly?
