    I have about 30 keets that I can sell. A neighbor down the road told my dh he wanted them. Of course he told him to talk to me when he asked about the price. ( I don't understand why people assume the chickens are his deal, they always do:rolleyes:) Anyway, I have no idea what to charge. I know he is going to want them cheap. My dh made some stupid deal with him to sell him Barred Rock chicks for $1 as long as he came and got them as soon as they hatched. Ended up selling him 2-3 week old chicks for $1 and it kinda ticked me off. I checked the hatcheries and saw that they sell from $4-5 each. I def won't charge that much, but I AM NOT selling them for $1 each. I will keep them before I do that. How much do ya'll think?

    I paid $4.70 for chicks at our feed store and then bought adults privately and paid $10 each for them. I think $3 would be fair for young chicks. $6 ish for juveniles.

    Guineas are near impossible to get around here. IF you can find them at a flea market or something, it's $6 per chick or $15 per adult [​IMG]

    Day old to a few weeks old go between $3 and $5 here. Older than that and the price goes up.

    Wish you were close. I have been looking for keets for 2 months. Have some eggs in the bator but some of those didn't make it just never formed.

    Guineas are very common around here, our feed store has pied, lavender, white, and pearl, all for $2.20 each.

    I sell mine for $5.oo just hatched and I can't hatch enough of them to keep up with demand. I charged $3.oo each last yr and found that was way too cheap. adults around here are $15-20.

    I just sold some keets myself. I saw what the hatcheries charged and set my price at $3. I listed them on Craigslist last night and they were sold by today. [​IMG]
