    [​IMG] I'm so excited! I've been giving people eggs for months, saying I would probably start selling them come spring. Well, the girls have picked up their laying now everyone is done molting, so I figured I'd give it a go. A neighbor had said he would be interested in buying some, so I brought them over and asked $2 for them. He said that wasn't enough! He insisted on giving me $3!! How crazy is that?! But now I'm not sure what to charge other people. Still, it was really fun getting my first egg money! [​IMG]

    I use my egg money to buy feed, hatching eggs, poultry supplies, etc. You know...feed the addiction!

    Congrats! Everyone has their own price, we charge $2 but alot depends on your area. Get $3 if you can!

    Quote:I don't think my hens could lay enough eggs to pay for everyone's food... sure they would be carrying the slack for a few roosters & a couple of turkeys in that equation... but no way would that work!

    Wonder what I'm doing wrong... [​IMG]

    "...feed the addiction" -hmm, that sounds like good advice. If they can pay for their feed, then maybe I could afford more chickens... Or a couple ducks or something! [​IMG]
