    Well because I have people begging me for eggs. Right now I have 7 hens, that takes care of my family. If I had more hens I could sell some eggs, right?

    LOL, We were hunting at a friends property and I offered his mother some eggs, we argued back and forth for a bit over price, I asked for homemade ice cream come summer and she agreed. Well I sent a dozen to her by way of my daughter, she calls a week or so later and says, "I didn't mean a dozen, she wanted 12 dozen, [​IMG] She used to raise chickens and sold eggs for years, she still has people stopping wanting to buy. Well she is going to sell them mine, gather the money and give to me. I told the grandkids we might have to go out and squeeze the hens, I have 17 and know at least eight are laying, soooo they better get busy. Now to talk someone into another coop [​IMG]

    Just be sure to choose the egg-laying breeds to speed-up the egg production! Some leghorns, maybe? [​IMG]

    Good luck with your eggs!
