For those of you with no "real" job, or trying to supplement income, what did you do to make money today?

I actually spent money in order to make money yesterday. I paid the down payment on some business coaching stuff so that I can move forward with my evolution of my business like I need to so that I can make more money!

Beekissed...I agree. Darn it tho, CL calls...and the swap meets...and the sweet tooth.

Proud to say that I went to a chicken swap Saturday and did NOT buy chickens, one of the litter of Gr Pyrs (WHAT a temptation!!),another goat or anything like that. I sure was patting myself on the back!!:cool: My only buy were some fertile eggs for 2 hens who decided to sit. Got 18. Just want to see some chicks & plan to sell them. These are speckled Sussex & kinda look like the Flower hens.

Then, I went home & began working on another chicken coop/pen for some roosters, hens for select fertile eggs... all from re-purposed material from another shed that came down in a storm a few months ago.

Worked on Mturk while hiding in my office. I managed to complete 5 surveys that will pay of $5.00 to my Amazon account. I've almost got enough money to buy some of the books I want! Yay for more educational books!

I've been selling approximately 10 dozen eggs a week for awhile now. It's paying for the chicken feed and supplementing the goat feed too. I love my hens!

@hqueen13 I'm about to drop some money on a chicken/dog pen this afternoon for future chicken breeding pen use. I'm getting some White Face Spanish hatching eggs shipped over from England in the next few weeks. I'm hoping to sell some of them here later on as they are extremely rare this side of the pond.

The pen came to me, in a way, via a new neighbour, complete with delivery, so I grabbed it!

Humph! Wish I could sell some eggs; nobody seems interested in buying duck eggs though. I have 2 customers who will buy a dozen eggs every couple of weeks. The ducks are laying between 5 and 6 every day however, and I can't keep up. DS is allergic to duck eggs so on top of all that, I still have to buy the occasional dozen chicken eggs. Our dogs get an egg a day each, and I try to fix eggs regularly, but I still have about 6 dozen sitting around right now. I have dehydrated some for use this winter, and I guess I'll have to start feeding some back to the ducks now, if I don't want to throw them away. I have started coating the clean eggs with a thin film of oil to preserve them for longer since I don't have room in the refrigerator for all of these. The oil keeps them fresh for over a month at cool room temperature.
