Not All Eggs Are Equal

If you enjoy eggs and you’ve tried eggs from several farms, you’ll be well aware there can be a huge difference in the taste and quality.

This isn’t to do with the breed of the hen that laid the egg, it’s to do with how the hens are being treated.

You should always look for eggs that are labeled as ‘free range’ or ‘cage free’ as a starting point.

Caged or battery hens are generally kept in dire conditions. Not only is it cruel and inhumane to keep hens caged up all day, but the result is also eggs lacking in taste and nutritional content.

Ideally, hens should have space to roam free-range, be able to graze on bugs and insects and be fed a high-quality organic feed.

In addition to this, they should have excellent living conditions and a high standard of care.

Happy chickens are healthy chickens, and healthy chickens lay the best eggs. It’s really as simple as that.

Selling Eggs in Idaho

If you’re interested in selling eggs in Idaho, whether that’s as a backyard chicken owner or scaling an egg farming business, you have to adhere to strict rules and regulations.

The regulations change from time to time, at the time of publishing, however, a summary for egg sellers as outlined by the Idaho State Department of Agriculture is:

Egg distributors and those who have 300 or more birds must comply with IDAPA 02.02.11 “Rules Governing Eggs and Egg Products” and Title 37, Chapter 15, Idaho Code, “Eggs and Egg Products.” 

If an individual has less than 300 birds, that person can sell the eggs without having to adhere to these requirements.

However, the eggs must be clean and the container must be labeled with the individual’s name, address, phone number, and the words “UNGRADED EGGS.”

There is an annual license fee of $20, and a small monthly levy. The costs are minimal though, don’t let this put you off starting an egg business.
