    Well, I want to sell my mealworms (I have a farm), and eggs from my chickens on eBay or craigslist.
    I live in Pennsylvania. Is there a law preventing this? I'm not sure how to check.

    Perhaps you could call your county agriculture extension agent to find out about regulations on selling your eggs. A local pet store where reptiles are sold could give you insight about selling mealworms.

    One help for your egg selling may be the free site www.Eggzy.net they have pretty cool flock management software, you can find out what your actual costs are to help you price your eggs, and they have egg stands where you could perhaps build up a customer base according to your zip code.
    good luck.
