So, I have batham chickens. One white silkie 3mon, one Mille fleur 3mon, one white Japanese and a male black Japanese both 2mon. The male Japanese was given to me by mistake, as he grew, I was like um.... not a hen. So not I guess I will be selling some eggs and chicks. They wont be ready to lay for a little while but what do I sell them for. At egg stage, babies and adults.

Sounds like your chicks will be mixed breeds. You won’t get as much for them as you can for purebred birds. Pricing depends on your area and what the demand is for these kind of birds. Most people can sell straight run chicks for about
$3-$5 each.
You may be able to get more for the pure Japanese bantams I am not sure. You would have to be sure which ones are which though in order to do this.
Same goes for the eggs, if they are from a mixed breed flock you won’t be able to get as much for them as pure bred flock eggs.
Best to check on craigslist and other sites and see what other people in your area are asking for their fertile eggs and chicks.
Good luck.😊

How old are they? 3 months? I would maybe wait till they are older. You can sell a female for like 15-20$ and the males for around 10$

Point of lay pullets go for about $20 in my area of north Florida. You can get an idea of an asking price for your area by looking at Craigslist.
