    My son-in-law have a bunch of baby chicks. The mother is a black cochin and the dad is a black sumantria (sp). He is wanting to sell them. Can you guys tell me what he should charge?

    Thanks in advance,

    I sold those exact crosses last year as started pullets around 14 weeks for $6.00 each . I didn't even bother trying to sell the boys they just ended up in the freezer. The cross makes for some nice winter hardy birds and excellent mommas. Hope this helps.

    Thanks JJ. I got my eggs going. Do you remember how many were black and how many were white?

    Uh No... Sorry But I'll tell you this there are 3 black hens and 4 white hens and for the most part lately they have been all laying every day. So about 60%40% split. Just remember any solid chicks will still carry the barred genes. [​IMG]
