    See here is my deal, since they don't have a name yet, and I don't believe they are a mutation, just a Texas A and M...I would charge $10 each for hens and $7 for cocks

    If you can get the color out, then I will believe [​IMG]

    Just like anything else, it really depends on your area and what you are willing to pay.

    It depends on where you live. Eggs are pretty much the same all over, but Coturnix quail bring higher prices here in New England. 3.50-5.00. At the auction a lot of 10 usually sells for 30-40.00. Unusual colors bring slightly more. Bobs can go from 4.00-7.00. Supply and demand. Sometimes a newbie shows up and bids like 80.00 for 10-12 A+Ms or something crazy. On Craigs List it might be more. Do a search. Right now I can get 15.00 for a decent ringneck grown Pheasant rooster easy. 5-6.00 for a hen. Mallards are super cheap in the fall 10-15.00 per, but in the Spring I can get a lot more from people who want to breed them or have them as a pet. If you live in area where lots of people breed then its cheap. If you live in a populated area where not many people have birds you can ask more. Lots of people want to train dogs now. The price on pheasants shoots up because the hatcheries have sold out.
