My 10 year old daughter with CP has really enjoyed hatching eggs. It is something she can participate in with out much effort and feel a huge accomplishment for. Since we don't need all the hens to lay all the eggs I'm wondering if there is a market out there for laying hens. Considdering the ever increasing fast pace of Americans my thoughts are that someone out there must want automatic egg makers and not have to wait 5 months or so for their reward. What do you think?
