I just sold my first doz eggs!! I'm so pleased!
We're selling them for $2.50/doz or 2 for .45. Walmart is selling brown eggs for $2.65/doz.
I have a long list of people who want eggs from me, when I get enough. Right now I only have a doz red sex-link hens and am getting about 8 eggs a day.
In Sept we will probably order more Ready-to-law hens from the co-op. THese were healthy and in good shape. I've had them for two weeks and it's been very hot (90F). I'm hoping to get an egg a day from all twelve when it cools some and they settle down a bit more.
We are having a lot of fun with the chickens. They are very interesting, especially to our 10 mo old shi tzu. He makes a bee-line for the chicken fence as soon as he gets out and stays glued there the entire time, just quietly watching. He does try to get in when I go through the door or the gate. I have to watch that I don't leave room for him to push it open and get in. I don't know what he'd do, maybe nothing. He's only 10 mos old and the rooster is taller than he is! lol!
