|The egg money jar|
Why $2.50? We're not trying to get rich here, but the chickens didn't need to be a money sink either. We believe there is a economic side of hobby farming, it should be able to provide and support it's self. Not buying eggs will save us money, but chicken feed ain't free! From the beginning our idea for the chickens was that they should pay for their own feed. $2.50 is the going price locally and should pay for feed and and fresh bedding every few months.
And so just like that, after months of planning and waiting, we are in the egg business!
