waretrop keeps....

I have many layer chickens that I have been keeping for years. I sell my eggs on Thursdays and never have leftovers, therefore all eggs are very fresh. I have all my customers in a group contact on my phone and call or text them every Wednesday. They reply if they need or don't need eggs. Thursday very early I have them packed up in plastic sack and deliver them to each of my customers. My customers are very close to me so it doesn't take much gas for me to do this.

I am sort of like the milkman or iceman from the 50's. I love to bring back a bit of the old...

That is interesting. Is it safe to do that? How much do you charge for that?

I really only sell to friends of friends. Most of them I have met many times before. It has been a slow growing thing and some people leave as customers as I find new ones. I have about 60 people to call or text each week. It's very nice because these people really like these eggs. I don't have to push them at all. They call me if I am late on my call days. I charge $3.00 a dozen at the moment.
