    Does anyone on here sell eggs? Have you found that you meet some really odd people? I don't know if I am a looney magnet or what but I'm just annoyed with people! I'm beyond frustrated with dealing with these city slickers that think they know so much about raising chickens. I've had peope complain because I feed my hens leftover milk from the goats. I wonder what they'd think if they saw my hens going crazy digging and eating in the fresh manure! [​IMG]


    Do you ever just want to quit! I keep comtemplating it each day.


    Tell me your stories because I need a laugh.

    How do these slickers find out you feed your chickens goat milk?

    I think I'd say something like "Oh... well, if you don't want any eggs I have five other people clamoring for them!"

    I would like to sell my Sebastopol geese eggs this Spring. I am already getting cold feet! I had a horrible time trying to sell 3 goslings. I ended up keeping them and they turned out very nice. I had lot's of calls and no shows. Any advice?

    Well, after that I wouldn't suggest telling them how your chickens mutilate mice and rip apart lizards for a snack. Also don't tell them how they eat scrambled eggs with a roach on top for breakfast. Definately don't tell them about the maggots and grubs at tea time. If they ask about their diets, just tell them they eat cardboard and lots of pasta. Yea lots and lots of pasta.

    Mine love nothing more than a maggoty predator carcass. I have one old layer, Stumper, who is the carrion queen. She will burrow into offal like a hyena. :eek: [​IMG]

    I've had some serious mouser hens and just the other day watched my Muscovies suck down small frogs like a spaghetti noodle. I would prefer they did not eat the frogs since the frogs eat lots of bugs though.

    Muscovies are the only animal I have seen that will eat slugs, big, small and GIANT. Now that is totally gross to watch. [​IMG]
