I wanted to have an idea of what it costs us to have fresh eggs; I just think it is a prudent to know such things. It is irrelevant in my situation, as is yours, because we don't sell eggs. I just felt compelled to sit down and figure it out at that moment because of what happened - and yes, I was ticked because of how this person did not take no for an answer and I gave in; shame on me, I knew better. If I sold eggs, it would have been a very different scenario. Anyway, I am glad to know an approximation of what a dozen of my girl's eggs actually cost to produce. I think most folks just figure feed costs and are happy to get that paid - to each his own as they say. I am just happy my girls are healthy, they are happy and they give us those beautiful, tasty golden eggs we are so blessed to be able to enjoy, whatever they cost!
