I sell 75-90 dozen eggs a month. Depends on production. But sell every one I can produce. Get $1/doz. No big profit but it's something.

Also raise and sell broiler chickens.400-500 a year.$7/bird that are about 6# dressed. Everything goes. Usually spoken for by the time I set the chicks under the brooder stove.

No big money, but fun and meet the nicest folk.

Selling eggs is fun and helps cover the feed costs. Out here on the west coast, or at least in San Juan County, my eggs sell for $3.00 to $3.50 a dozen, and organic eggs cost $3.50 to $4.00 a dozen.

A 50 pound bag of layer feed at the feed store cost $9 to $12 dollars. I live on an island, so all the feed must be brought over from the mainland by ferry. The people who run the feed store have to pay big money to take their truck onto the state ferry, and this raises the cost of the feed a little.

I always wonder why egg prices vary so much.

here the feed price is a bit lower. between $7.00 and $8.00 for a 50 pound bag of Layer feed. eggs also go cheap here.

though people are willing to pay a little more for fresh free range chicken eggs. they know that they are Healthier and better tasting.
