    Depends on the quality of the parents and their bloodlines.

    Also, black sex-links do not breed true. If you want to sell them, then you need a RIR rooster mating with Barred Rock hens.

    Quote:If its to a friend of yours then the price will be up to you, but if you are selling them to people from other states, then, personally, I wouldn't sell them because they came from a hatchery. Hatchery birds are not all that good quality except in the area of laying. A lot of hatcheries focus more on quantity rather than quality(Adhering to the breed Standard).

    If you have the Barred Rock rooster breeding with the Black Sex-Links, then the offspring will not be Black Sex-Links.

    $5 a dozen plus shipping sounds good. I've seen several mixes sale for that. Or if you could pick out only the pure eggs I would charge more.
