Whole Lot of Huevos Going On

Sixteen eggs today. Sixteen! 

I haven't been able to drum up a lot of interest in egg-trade or egg sales, either. Looking at Craigslist, seems like a lot of people are trying to sell eggs. I think maybe, when the economy started to go south late last year, more local folks decided to get hens, and there is now a general surplus of eggs in the area. That's just a theory. 

I did trade two dozen eggs for a homemade apple pie (NOT bread man's pie, alas. This pie was mediocre.), and I do have an egg drop to perform next week, two dozen more. But that's not making a dent in sixteen eggs a day, friends.

We're going to have to start eating a few chickens, I think.

Do you have any dogs that you could add an egg or two to their food a day?

Do you live on a well traveled road where you could put a "Fresh eggs for sale" sign in your yard?

That is about all the ideas I have right now. Sorry to hear you are not having much luck selling as many as you would like.

Who would have thought your area would be saturated though? Mmm...bummer I'm 3k miles away from ya cuz I'd be a really good egg buyer! lol

we do have a sign up on our well travelled road, but people just don't stop. I'll get a good trade network going eventually.
