    Hi, my friend needs to downsize on her flock of geese, and wanted us to kill a bunch. I would do this, but I wouldn't be able to eat all of them... I'd rather take some alive and sell them. How much should I ask for one? I'm not sure what kind they are, and don't know how big they are either...

    It's gong to depend on what kind they are, their ate, their quality as pets or meat, and your local demographics. It's different all over the place for how much things can go for. I've seen started pullets go for 15-25 each here, while hearing others say they can't sell them for even 5 bucks. Check out your local postings and possibly the local craigslist in your are for an idea of what you could charge.

    Adult geese regularly go for only a dollar a piece at the auction here. Goslings go for 3 or 4 dollars.

    Do you think it's worth trying to sell them, or should I just cull all of them and eat them?
