    Im planning on selling my blue cochin roo, and im having trouble coming up with a good price range. I here this breed is pretty rare and he seems to be in great condition. Any ideas?

    agree with the above. I'd probably ask $20 or so for him and be thankful for whatever I could get.

    I agree. Roosters are really hard to give away. If you have some people interested then you could maybe charge 5 to 20 dollars. But again you may just have to give him away for free.

    Is he a hatchery quality bird, or is he show quality? If he is only a hatchery bird, it may be hard to get even $20 for him. I might start with $15. However, if he is a show bird, than $20-25 might work.
