I don't know if this is the right place to post this question, if it's not I apologize. Last summer, for girl scouts, my daughter hatched some Serama eggs. We currently have 8 including 2 cockrels. We've decided we need to downsize due to lack of space and too much crowing. They are definitely a little big for Seramas measuring 12"-15". I plan to list them on a local Facebook livestock page. Could someone please tell me how much to sell these for. I have no idea.[IMG][IMG]
It depends on the local market and particular site you're posting to, and how long you're willing to hold onto them before you need the space they're using.
I've had success selling young (3-6 mo old) pet quality pairs for $40 at poultry swaps. I could probably get a bit more in that particular market but I am a newbie myself and just pricing them to move quickly right now. I've had to let single cockerels go for as low as $5, they are a hard sell. If you anticipate selling more cockerels down the road, consider holding onto one of your hens to make a pair later.
If you want to sell as trio then I think 75-80. And then if they don't sell in a couple weeks you have some options. You can change phrasing to include "or best offer," you can come down on price a touch, or you can split them into two sales, a pair and a single hen.
If you split to pair and single hen, sell the hen first so she doesn't have to hang out alone before sale. There are ALWAYS serama buyers looking for hens and pullets & don't want a male so you can probably ask a little more for her since the buyer won't have to take a rooster too.
The rooster is pretty, it's a less common patterning and I think that factors in when you're selling pet quality. If you can get better pics, I'd ask 50-55 for the pair and 30-35, for a single hen. Get them posed on a table and take nice shots from the side, that'll help you sell for the price you want.
Make sure you mention they're pet quality. You don't want an uninformed buyer who assumes they're getting show quality coming back later all upset when they learn otherwise.
