    Hello all,

    I am new to BYC and have had chickens for about a year. I started with 6 and now have 14 (8 of which aren't old enough to lay yet). Does anyone know about licenses or permits needed if I just want to sell eggs to friends and co-workers? I looked online but haven't found anything for people with less than 300 chickens.

    I have also been curious about Jersey Giants for awhile now. Does anyone have them and can tell me the pros and cons of owning them?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined the flock! For info on licences and permits, the best place to ask would be on your state thread, which you can find here:

    For the Jersey Giants, here are some breed discussions where you can meet owners and breeders:
