Egg Famine Hits Coshocton

November 1911--Coshocton found itself in the middle of an egg "famine" during 1911. According to the Coshocton Daily Age, the "famine" would boost egg prices to 50 cents per dozen by Christmas. Cold storage eggs were plentiful, but local grocers refused to carry the higher priced eggs.

The egg shortage was credited to cold weather and non egg laying hens.
