    Hello everyone! I have been dormant on this forum for... about 5 months. :D Anyways, hopefully we will be moving to a farm.On the farm we will have chickens,goats, horses, cows, sheep, pigs, ducks, turkeys, and everything farmy! We are hoping to raise chickens for the eggs then sell the eggs at our local farmers market for a little extra cash. If there are any tips that you guys have in the same/similar situation, it would be much appreciated. We would also try to get private buyers on the side. How much should we cost for a dozen eggs? Thanks! :)

    Me and my neighbor go down to the end of the street and sell eggs 2 dollars a dozen for eggs that are all different sizes. Now if your eggs are large and one solid color people seem to pay higher prices for them. I've heard prices going as high as 5 dollars a dozen. It all depends on the local economy and how many local farmers are selling eggs and for how much. Usually you want the same price that other farmers have.
