    In my state you must have a license to sell eggs, but what if you give them as a gift? Are you still liable in the same way?

    Would you gift to a stranger? I would only gift to friends, neighbors and family, and people I know. All the eggs I've given as gifts/thank you's, have been warmly received and appreciated. I would think that as long as they are free of 'debris' on the outside of the eggs, as most come out clean anyway, they should be fine. If you don't want to gift, or sell, you could consider barter.

    I would see if your state, as IN. does, has a State Egg Board (or the like) and e mail them and ask, or check on there web site for information. That is what I did to make sure I was not doing anything wrong by selling them.
    But I would not see anything wrong with giving a "gift" to anyone.
