    I have some split black and lav 8 week old ameraucanas and I need to sell some of them. Was wondering how much to sell them for? I have both m and f black and m and f lavs and a few of the female lavs have no beard but are fairly large and good color. Should I sell them in pairs or as a group?

    I would check craig's list and see if anyone else is selling birds of your quality. Around here in southern IL, people won't pay much more than 7 to 10 dollars for a POL hen, no matter the quality.

    Lavender Ameraucanas, I would say about anywhere from $15 to 30 for POL pullet. Cockerals, a bit cheaper.

    They
    are lavender, no flaws, 3 months old. $20 per pair. I sell the chicks for $6. Older roosters with no flaws $10, with flaws like gold leakage or bad comb- anywhere from $5 to free.

    If they have serious faults like clean faces or single combs I would sell them for the going rate of EEs in your area.
    Also- if you sell them in pairs you can get more for your roosters, and get the number of roos down faster. If you are lucky you will have a pullet or two left over to keep or sell as a trio, etc.
