    I just sold 10 hens in less than 4 hours on craigslist.com and I think my DH (who I had to talk into getting chickens in the first place) was going to cry!!

    $10 each...

    That's pretty good business if you ask me!! [​IMG]

    I might cry too though! [​IMG]

    I love it when things work out so well.
    Can you link your ad? I am looking for selling hints.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    I know how you feel. We have sold approx 100 or so laying hens and grown roosters this last month or so. It is getting down to slim pickins, but that is what we raise them for, to sell. At times I think "we are never going to sell all these birds and fresh eggs", then the next week I am panicked because we are so low. Congrats on the sales!!

    Quote:I deleted the ad because I kept getting all these emails for requests.

    But I did put a picture of 3 dozen eggs and wrote in the message body about being a NH state certified 'clean' flock, green and blue eggs, and the fact that they were held by children from day one.

    I'm really starting to get bummed... [​IMG]

    But its for the best!

    Good job!
    I can relate to the feeling of loss on a smaller scale. I just rehomed two roosters. Try not to feel bad, just think of how many people you are helping in the wonderful world of chickens. We all got our birds from someone.
