You seriously would buy eggs from someone who just said most eggs in the stores are 6 months old before ever getting to the carton? You would trust that guy?
I can't believe people think they are less likely to get sick eating locally-grown, free-range eggs than storebought eggs. Buy for taste and to support local people, but please - the chances of these eggs harboring problems is much greater than the ones from the shelves at WalMart.

We have free range chickens and sell ours for $2.25 / doz. We are only getting 8 per day now and sell them to friends/neighbors as fast as we get a doz.

We plan on hatching more chickens to try to meet demand.

I guess there is someone else called llamalovers. We are in the Stroud OK area not MO. I better use another name.

The quality of the eggs is determined by the quality of the feed used, as well as how clean the chicken houses are kept and how the eggs are handled after they are layed. We check for eggs every hour or two so we can beat the snakes to them. So ours aren't out in the heat very long. Ours are free range.

As I stated on my previoius post we sell ours to friends and neighbors for 2.25 / doz and sell them as fast as we can get a doz.

We need to hatch more eggs so we can have more chickens.

Back when gasolene was not so expensive, my familty would drive some dirt roads and we often found fresh eggs and they tasted better. When we traveled Rt 66 we kept our eyes open for FRESH EGGS signs. We cooked on a little kerosene camp stove. We ate fresh eggs all the way to California and fresh fruit all the way back home. Whiteing Brothers always had the best gasolene price.

What a crock. Eggs in the store are not six months old. There are no chemicals or hormones used in the egg industry to make hens lay eggs. Buying local does not mean that eggs are automatically e. coli or salmonella free. His hens and eggs could just as easily be infected as any others, probably more so since his pens are open to wild bird droppings and rodents.
