    [​IMG] I just sold 2 white pea chicks for $40.00 each but they were 4 weeks old. I usually like to get them up to at least 4 weeks old where they are mostly feathered in before I will put them up for sale, but I only sell them here straight off the farm. Seems like a reasonable price to me; the man that bought the first two that I just sold has already bought the two pied chicks that I have to sell, but they were only a week old when he saw them. I told him that I would grow them up a bit and contact him once they were 4 weeks old. [​IMG]

    I didn't sell them for $40..................... I sell mine for $25 for IB .......and I like to wait awhile for them to grow up some. I couldn't believe people were selling them for $40.


    TheRanch....... now I don't think $10 a hen for nice laying Bantam Light Brahmas & Mottled or Black D'uccles was too high, I've put more into them in feed to get them to that point... LOL [​IMG]
    those little buggers are eating machines....... [​IMG]

    Jennifer, where are you selling yours through? I tried CL and I can't get $20 for BS babies in Tampa. I dont think it would be fair to go any lower considering the feed and time it takes to care for such magnificent birds.

    I know right...... I can pick mine up and they are like bricks...... were do they put it? guess in their feet... hehe



    Nathhowe, I would not go lower...... I used Craigslist and also had a waiting list from my chicken customers. You can try Ocala4sale also. If you were closer they'd already be sold...... [​IMG] Try tacking on a little more to the price, then you can haggle down so people think they are getting a bargin..... alot of people on CL just want a deal....

    I think starting at 20.00 or 25.00 is the normal. thats for blues, also is if you know the background, like blue split bronze would sell for more.


    I also like mine to be a few weeks old before selling them..Unless the person buying them have raised peachicks before. I would rather spend a little money on feed(they sure don't eat much),than to hear they died.
