Well it looks like I'm officially in the egg business. Right now I'm only selling eggs for eating but today I got my new Sportsman incubator and 6 dozen fancy breed hatching eggs along with egg cartons and labels I've made up for selling my eggs and by Spring I hope to be selling chicks and hatching eggs. I currently have over 60 chickens of various breeds, including a dozen roosters, so all of my eggs are extremely fertile so I've been hatching a lot of them but not keeping the breeds separate so I'm getting a lot of "surprise" chicks. By Spring I'll build separate pens and separate the breeds. I got my first customer and after her first two dozen eggs she came back for more and said that her husband told her "Don't buy eggs from anyone else. Those were the best eggs I've ever eaten." Of course here in Woodville (country) many people have their own chickens but everyone keeps them locked up because of the woods and predators. Mine are truly free range thanks to my pack of dogs who keep predators at bay. Here's my first cartons I just finished making up after designing my new label. Unfortunately since so many people around here have chickens they are selling the eggs for only $1-$2 per carton but in Baton Rouge and Covington, where most of our friends and family live, and where I'm back and forth, they will sell for $4-$5. I had never been so thrilled as when I made my first sale for $4.00. I ran home and started an egg money stash.
