    We are moving from 70 acres to 4 (all wooded) acres. I must downsize my animals. I am trying to sell my (5) Guineas ($5 each), 3 ducks ($10 each) some laying hens ($10 each) and 3 month pullets ($5 each) and NO ONE is interested in ANY OF THEM! I REALLY need them gone ASAP. Am I asking too much?!?! I have never been to a sale and would like to keep it that away, but I'm afraid I am going to have to resort to that. Blah. I also have decided to sell my show quality bearded Splash Silkie hen *cries* but I can't sell her either. Any suggestions on where to list?? I have them on Craigslist and the Market Bulletin takes a month to publish!

    Sounds like fair pricing to me and our area. People don't have money. I suggest try bartering on cl. Good Luck!

    Also put them on the auctions here on BYC... but be willing to negotiate if you're having a hard time placing them...

    I'd be willing to sell them cheaper if someone were to take most or all. I just want to atleast get back what I paid for them... as DAY OLDS.

    I can't list them on here, it says I have to upgrade my membership (?)

    You can try

    It's free and fairly simple. Most of the ads are from TN & KY, but there are occasional ones from N GA. I haven't had much luck either lately-all girls and nothing is selling! How am I suppsed to start fall hatching? The public is not helping my addiction in the least!

    Seriously?OMG,you are GIVING them away.In my area,I have not been able to find any pullets or young laying hens at all this year or last.I bought day old chicks this year because I could not bear being chickenless any longer:hit.I wish you lived closer,I would take them all before you changed your mind about the price.Well maybe not the guineas.[​IMG]

    People probably figure that when you get REALLY desperate you'll give them away.
