    [​IMG] . You really need to check with your local ordinances. These will vary from city city
     
  3. Here in Calif. you almost need a permit to breath. [​IMG]

    No you do not need a license to sell eggs in California. You do need to put those safe handling stickers on the egg cartons though. The ones about not eating the eggs raw. You can get those from Nasco in Modesto if you are near there, or you can find Nasco on the web. Just find the agricultural catalog. They have a lot of different divisions.

    I'm not from CA but I did a quick search and sure looks like you need to 'register' (get a license) to sell eggs there.

    "Anyone engaged in the production, sales, or handling of shell eggs or egg products in California must register with CDFA."

    It depends on what county you are in. San Bernardino County, yes you need a license to sell eggs. Then again, Hemet Dennis said it best - you need a license to breathe here.

    That's why I burp a lot and it saves wear and tear on the other end. [​IMG]

    here in Indiana as long as your hens are on the same property as you sell on (like in your backyard and you sell them at your front door or in your garage sale) you have nothing to do but sell, otherwise you have to go through the state egg board, but that varies state to state and comunity to comunity. But for some reason here in Indiana you can't sell raw milk.
