I live on a family farm of my in-laws. When my chickens first began laying, we were overflowing in eggs, and I was more than happy to share extra eggs with family and coworkers. But eventually we started selling our extra eggs to pay for the chicken feed. We have LF and bantam hens, so we'd sell the "big girl" eggs and keep/eat the bantam eggs. We still ended up with extra eggs sometimes, and what we didn't eat we'd offer to my mother-in-law or other family members. Here's my problem: For the past year, but mostly over the past six months or so, my one sister-in-law and her husband have begun to EXPECT eggs (for free). More and more frequently they've started asking for "spare" or "extra" eggs. They know we sell our large eggs for feed money. And they know we have a 21 yr. old son who eats a LOT. So far we've always coughed up eggs for them, although we've been sure to mention that our aging flock doesn't lay like they used to (because all of our LF are in the 3-5 yr. age range), and that molting has put a huge damper on the number of eggs we're getting...all our attempts at hinting that they shouldn't be asking for eggs. But they've begun asking us for eggs almost once a week! This is my husband's favorite sister, and I get along well with her. But I'm starting to feel resentful about them expecting eggs. Because this is a family farm, I certainly don't want to piss off my neighbors, but I'm getting ticked off myself. I'm not sure how/what to say to let them know that this needs to stop without causing family conflict... Only one other family member has asked us for eggs, and he offered to buy them! What could I tactfully say the next time they ask us for eggs???
