    What do you buy with the money you get selling eggs?
    I sell for $1.50-$2.00 a dozen.

    Sometimes I give it to my kids to spend at the dollar store.Sometimes I will buy a lotto ticket.I usually play the Rolling cash five here in Ohio( usually win $10),so I keep ahead a bit.Ah if only I could win the 100k the girls would be in a posh coop instead of that tarp covered metal can!

    I was thinking about selling to the kids school,since half the flock are chickens from the school.Then I would donate the money to the school.Probably to much of a legal issue so I guess I will just stick to selling to neighbors and friends....or giving away.

    When I sell eggs for hatching to the feed store, I just use it to buy feed. I pretty much break even this way. I give away eating eggs when I have extras.

    Then again - I live in the city and don't have a ton of chickens [​IMG]

    After feed it goes into our 3 yr old Grandson's ING account that our Daughter has set up for him. Soon he'll be splitting the money with his soon to arrive little sister.

    I completely added on to the house,, when we moved it paid for the new septic system, well, new barn, farm improvements, of course all the new bantam,peafowl, turkey and duck pens. It covers the feed bill, power bill, 2 credit cards, and obviously help pay for all our new additions to the bird pens.
    Like Steve, I get feed by the tons though, over 1,000 birds to feed every day
