Ron McEwan 6/1/2011 8:55:18 AM

I remember seeing scales like this years ago. The eggs reminds me that it may have been used to weigh eggs, however I thought they were sold by the number and not weight. Every farm in MO at one time had 3 to 5 hundred chickens. Great shooting and great memories Amy #9438744
