    I placed a nice sign in my front yard advertising Fresh Eggs. It took one week and I got my first customer. She bought 3 dozen eggs, all I had. LOL My sign said that they would cost $3.50/dz but I sold them to her for $3 since they were just under the min. for a large egg. The average was 54gr. I am excited!!! [​IMG] Maybe these girls will eventually pay for themselves. LOL [​IMG]

    Yea! Congrats!

    Am waiting for at least 9 of mine to lay at the same time so I have a regular supply to start selling.

    Right now I have 5 regulars, and two off and on. May not be till spring, but I have my dreams it will be soon.
