    How much are you guys getting for a dozen of eggs.
    I work at the farmers market and there's a lady there who sells about 10 dozen eggs each week. She sells a dozen for 5 dollars! and you know what? people flock to her when she gets there and she sells out in like 20 minutes.

    I have seen farmers market eggs for 5 bucks a dozen here also. We sell ours for 3.00 and people don't hesitate to buy them. We do free range ours though and they DO like that and already said that is the reason they are willing to pay the extra. In Winter we give them all sorts of other food to make up for NO grass.

    I'm looking at three bucks a doz. here. Farm fresh eggs were going for $4/doz until the economy tanked. In my neighborhood, I'm selling them for $2/doz. since they put up with the noise.

    so two dozen a day
    dozen for 5 dollars
    10 dollars a day
    lets say 2 dollar feed a day
    10-2=8*356=2848$ a year-
    even minus "life" in the equation and still 2000 a year.
    I would say not bad for chickens [​IMG]
    enought to pay for car insurance:D

    $3.00 per doz and we sell out 15 doz. within an hour...and this is a small farmer's market.

    I think with the price of feed, we are going to up to $4.00 per doz. That's how much they are in the store...and they aren't even fresh.
