CCS junior sells chicken eggs for SAE

■ Editor’s note: The Imperial Republican is showcasing some of the Imperial FFA members’ supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs).

Matalie Wallin, a junior at Chase County Schools, sells chicken eggs as part of her Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) for the Imperial FFA chapter.
Wallin has had her flock for a couple years, “so starting my SAE wasn’t super hard to do.”
“Over the years we’ve grown our flock and are now at 50 chickens total,” Wallin said.
She collects an average of 30-35 eggs per day.
“In order to sell the eggs, I always make sure they are clean from any dirt or debris before packaging in reused cartons, or our own special egg cartons,” Wallin said.
She sells a dozen eggs for $2 and an 18-pack for $3.
While Wallin buys her chicken feed from local retailers, the chickens are also free range.
“We sell them locally and have weekly customers as well to people who call in between,” she added.
To purchase some of her eggs, contact Wallin at 308-882-1253.
