Selling her backyard chicken’s eggs for cheap, CT mom’s business is about ‘making people happy’

ORANGE — A local mom is earning mere chicken feed in her new egg delivery business, but as a cancer survivor, she feels the riches pouring down upon her every time she pulls up to a house in her SUV.

“It’s sort of a feel-good thing. If I can provide eggs from happy, free chickens, I feel good,” Tasha V. Meisenheimer said.

Customers can get the eggs delivered for themselves or a half or full dozen delivered to someone else for special occasions such as a birthday, anniversary or get well wish, or just as a “thinking of you.” She’s working on little sayings for gift cards, such as “just chicken on you,” “Happy Birthday, spring chicken” and “You’ve stol-HEN my heart.”
