Just want to share some information about the little egg business we've started... A couple of months ago, much to my surprise my DH suggested that we try selling our extra eggs. Just to the neighbors, he said. Okay, I ordered a couple of signs from Vistaprint.com, my DH found a small refrigerator on Craigslist for $15, and we were in business! We put the refrigerator on the covered porch of the barn, and they are self serve on the honor system. We're only asking $2.00 a dozen, just to help pay for some feed. We usually get a dozen or so eggs a day, so I usually have a dozen extra eggs per day to sell. Our neighbors are loving it! One guy buys 3 dozen a week. They have the system down -- put money in the little plastic box (which is not locked up), return egg cartons and put them in the container, and help yourself to the eggs. One neighbor asked if we had anybody stealing. I told him I had no idea -- I never keep track. Just collect the money and cartons and put out more eggs. If somebody is desperate enough to steal, I guess they must need the eggs or money pretty badly. Here's a picture of the sign we had made: I've been getting enough money to buy a bag of feed a week, so it's helping to cover costs. And, I have quite a few young pullets that are still several months away from laying, so if I end up keeping them we'll be having a lot more eggs to sell. The neighbors LOVE the colored eggs (I don't have a single white egg layer). They especially like the Black Copper Marans eggs because they are so dark. Do any of you have "little egg businesses" that you'd like to share stories about? I'd love to hear your stories!!
