It was our first agricultural business transaction. The last time we bought chicken feed, the nice people at Cape Feed and Supply told us they happily sell their customers’ eggs to other customers, who happily buy them. For every dozen we bring in, we get a $2. store credit. They sell the eggs for $3.99, and everybody wins.
Yesterday, we brought in four dozen eggs. A fifty-pound bag of layer pellets was $11.42, including tax. Although we had to subsidize to the tune of $3.42 (and do the heavy lifting) the chickens just about paid for their own food. Kevin said we were pimping them out, but I thought it was perfectly wholesome. Birds, supporting themselves and keeping us in eggs!
I’m going to have a word with the cat.
