Sams has them at 6.00 for 18. We got chickens a while ago. Never buy another egg again and they're fun as heck to watch.
I miss my chickens so much. We did have to buy eggs in winter as laying is light dependent and we were up north. You can supplement light, but it is harder on your birds. I also mis the garbage disposal aspect for food scraps and the free fertilizer. The nitrogen they produce is worth more than eggs at the retail level.

If you decide you want to go again I should have some nice Australorp chicks in the tail end of February. You're welcome to them. The rules for Edmond are pretty lax so getting a permit is no problem.

Australorps are the BEST breed. I had one named Blackula that laid for a decade, and every one I have owned had a great disposition. Unfortunately I'm in a HOA.

Deciding that we wanted breakfast for supper last night and were getting low on eggs and a few other things we went to Walmart yesterday afternoon and eggs were $7.27 per dozen.......these weren't fancy organic or free range eggs, just plain ol' eggs.

What's going on with the price of eggs ?

Sam's Club at 15th and I-35 was completely out of eggs yesterday. Walmart next door had plenty though. It was weird.

For some reason, every time I see somebody write that phrase, I hear Sam Kinison yelling “I’m in HELL!!!!!”
I like to call em H.O. damn As. Got out last year and never looking back. Ha Ha Ha.

I had been getting my eggs at natural grocers for 1.99/doz the entire past year, but the past two times ive gone they have been completely out. I asked the cashier, she said she had heard that it had something to do with losing/swapping out too much laying stock, which is causing huge shortages. I've read in several places that bird flu is causing the death of millions of chickens, not because they all get it, but because if one or two get it, the entire farm gets culled. I really want to get some chickens, but we have a small yard, and two chicken killer dogs.

Save-A-Lot in Shawnee had the 18 count for $7.15 yesterday. I passed.

They seem to always have eggs but they've been out of bread most of the last year. Weird.
