    I have a friend wanting to buy some of my home hatched/raised BSL pullets.

    They are almost 13 weeks old and have been raised very natually. No meicated feeds, in a tractor and now started free ranging. Very nice healthy girls. I'm not looking for top dollar prices, just what's fair for us both.

    Thanks,
    Liz

    At 13 weeks I would probably sell them for 12.50 a piece. I get 10.00 for ten weeks old.

    Alot depends on where you live and how badly someone wants them and how badly you want to get rid of them. I just sold 10 BO, 14 weeks and 19 weeks. 2 of them were Jodi's Buffs and were beautiful. I got $8.50 apiece and did not even recover my cost of hatching them and feeding. We have a lot of chickens in MI and they go cheap. I figured I was cutting my lose by selling them that cheap. If I had waited for someone to come along who would pay what they were really worth, I would have a lot more $ in them with the cost of feed. At $15 apiece I may have broke even. Sooo, it all depends.

    The Wilson County Fair is this week. Most of the pullets that are there for sale are selling for about $10, including a lot of BSLs.

    Wow, I was getting ready to sell off a few chicks I've hatched out over the last couple weeks to about 2 months old and was only going to ask for $3 - $5 for them. Maybe I'll have to raise my price just a little bit but still offer a package deal if getting 4 or more chicks.
