    I just sold 4 dozen eggs, my whole stock to some Mexicans that stopped by. My whole inventory is gone. And of course it figures, I just gave 3 dozen away this morning to a friend, wish I had them back now. But I did get $3 a doz. Enough to pay for the feed I bought today. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    They even wanted some chickens to eat. Of course I don't have any. But if my girls hatch out some roos I'll be happy to sell them to'em. But that won't be for months. Now I gotta go cover up my FRESH EGGS FOR SALE sign.

    Congrats! The only time ppl stop by my house was when they wanted to buy Henry as a fighting cock. Yeah like that big baby would go after anything!
    And of course they got a few choice words from me [​IMG]
    Now that we have our privacy fence up for them...no more unexpected guests. I thought about putting up a eggs for sale sign but didn't know how other people in my neighborhood might feel.

    I'm in a rural area so I was tickled to sell them. But it does make me worry about strange men just showing up. Luckily my DH was here to go to the door.
    I wish I knew if I had a market for meat chickens @ here. Because most of the mexicans want a fresh kill when it comes to meat. If I knew I could swing it I'd have a slew of them to sell. Friend of mine says they can go as much or more than $20 a bird. That would be a good lil business.

    Congrats. :clapIt is really exciting to sell those first eggs. My husband would go out and squeeze the eggs out if he thought they would lay faster. He sells every dozen I get at work. People walk up to me on the street, and ask me if I have any eggs to sell. I even have my students trying to buy them from me. Mine are pretty cheap, but I do cover the cost of the feed.[​IMG]
