    The Ara's are very cool!

    A quick question for the sellers out there, what is a 11 week old FWM roo worth? I have three and was just asked if I wanted to sell one (which I do) but I have no idea what they are worth! They also asked about making it a pair, so keen to know what they would go for too.

    Hatched ourselves from eggs 5-6 on the Maran scale, shank feathering ranged from light to heavy over the six birds we have if that makes an impact on price.

    Thanks in advance, Ben

    Are you a member of some of the local Facebook groups for buying and selling chooks?
    It will give you a better idea. At this time of year lots of people have roosters and cant even give them away!

    Thanks Ash, I have looked over some, but the prices seem all over the place. Checked chooknet and some were $65 a pair and other were giving them away if they bought a pullet!

    I think I will just go for an average price, I am flexible but at the end of the day, I just want to have paid my out of pocket expenses for the hatch.

    HELLOOOO! Arghhh been so long since I've been online! Work has been crazy anddd been very busy with the new little chicks! [​IMG] First hatch went well! We ended up having 15 fertile and had 13 hatch! One I didn't expect to hatch as I candled it and felt it stopped growing around day 12 but I left it in just in case and sadly the other little one just never came out [​IMG]

    BUT! Here's some pics of my new little bubs! At the moment they're inside in our dining room hehe but I do have another house set up for them, right now though we love having them inside, we've all become obsessed with them! My mum was be-sodded when they hatched haha we even got a little teary! They really are the sweetest little things and all very healthy so far.

    We have Barnevelders, Plymouths and Australorps in the mix [​IMG]

    Hope you've all been well! Missed my chook made Aussie mates hahaha
