If you’ve had chickens for any length of time then you know their egg production has peaks and valleys. While some of those low times can make you feel like you’ll never get another fresh egg again, the high production times can leave with with more eggs then you’ve ever seen before!
When your chickens are laying like crazy, you might have considered selling eggs from your hens. While it may seem as simple as putting them in a carton and exchanging them for money, it’s usually much more complex. It can depend on where you live and how many chickens you have. In some states you need to wash and refrigerate the eggs and in others washing and refrigeration is strictly forbidden!
There are even more rules about packaging and handling. Plus, what about taxes? It’s a mess quite frankly, but how do you figure it all out?
