    I was thinking about getting some fertile eggs for one of my broody hens to hatch out this summer just for fun. Was just wondering, how hard is it for you sell mutt chickens? Do they usually go quick or are people usually not interested since theyre not pure breeds? And how much do you usually charge per mutt chicken (price for cockerel, price for pullet)
    Thanks !

    Most the time, in my area, any kind of young pullet/ hen that is in the 10 to 15 dollar price range goes quick. At $20 it's probably should be young and pure bred. Roosters are always harder to sell. Alot also has to do with time of year, in spring things sell better than summer or winter.
