Great! Even at twice the price.

By the end of this month we will have gotten almost 4 dozen eggs out of our two laying hens in April. Even more impressive, they waited a couple of days into the month to actually start laying eggs. If The Princess' hen would get with the program, we would be approaching 5 and a half dozen eggs a month.

I have a spreadsheet and graphs if anyone is interested. But the hard-boiled fact is that our free-range, cage-free (except when they sleep), grass-fed, hormone-free, steroid-free, hopefully swine flu-free eggs are down to costing us only $5.73 a piece. Yeah, don't tell the wife or we might be eating Chicken and Dumplins for dinner, OK?

Hey, so long as they keep producing, the per egg cost will keep dropping! Then when they are no longer in their egg laying prime, Coq au Vin!

Thats rad. I had chickens as a kid too. If you wait to eat them after too long the meet gets tough. So if you were to eat them, do it before they stop laying good ones.

But are you actually selling the eggs? know...THAT really determines whether or not you're better on eatin' some dumplin's!
