I wanted to share with yall the research we did on selling eggs in Texas. We are very by the books because it's hard to always assume positive intent when you are meeting people from Facebook or Craig's List for the first time. Therefore, the laws that are meant to protect you, also protect us from those who try to make a quick dollar by exploiting those same laws in court. In those cases, it helps to know the law well.
To get a good idea of the quality of product you are getting from any farm or homestead, it usually helps to know what the animals are doing on the farm. Our chickens and ducks have really interesting lives and behaviors. Obviously we’ve named a few with distinct characteristics, but in general they all get to follow the same routine each day.

Our chickens start out the day way before we could ever get out there. On a full moon, the roosters actually don’t really sleep much. They crow pretty much the whole time from their roost in the stables.
