you'd be surprised though, we worked out that our monthly egg sales from 85 chickens pretty much pays for our feed bills for all the animals
keeper of goats, sheep, pigs, ducks, chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, goldfish and children, just don't ask me which is the most work!

1.20 for 6 at the front gate and to folk at work.  We do have some lovely people that make a special journey to collect their eggs but some quibble that the farm shop sell at 90p for 6 - well, buy them there I say!  My hens are true free range and fed only the best :huff: :huff: :P .

I take on ex-commercial hens (used to be ex-batts) and feed them until nature takes it's course :'( .  It really peeves me when I have 'caged hen' egg boxes left at the gate .  I know I should not get mad but...

1.20 here. Keeps the demand ticking. In terms of feed, we buy A+P GM free which is not the cheapest but we still reckon cost at 10p per egg so there is a bit of a profit there.

1.50 per half dozen for good sized chicken eggs. Duck eggs are 2 for half a dozen.
