    Southcoast of mass anywhere from $2.00 to $3.00 a dozen. The $3.00 are organic or so they say. I wouldn't buy them I have seen how they keep there chickens and it's not very nice, about 100 in a space big enough for 25.

  10. I am selling mine for 2.00. Some sell for 1.50.

    I go according to what my girls lay and what food goes for so that they pay for there own food. I am still supporting them though. But that is what you do for your kids....[​IMG]
