    I have four hens that are laying but a flock of 7 and a roooster. the other four are about to lay. they are singing daily etc. i have 3 rir, 2 BR, 1 ee, 1 buff orp, and an astrolorp rooster with coop and water feeder and chicken wire, and garbage can filled with food and oyster shell DE and grit. How much should i see it all for or if i sell it all and only the 4 layers how much should i sell that for? thanks i have no idea. thanks

    Well I just purchased 2 RIR/Orp's at the point of lay from a local feed store for $11 each. I have seen other places sell point of lay pullets for $20 each. So I would say that you should look at prices in your locality then deduct for each year of age they are (the older hens are worth less than pullets).

    If you want them to move quickly then you should price them on the lower end. I wish you all the best! Sorry I am not more helpful [​IMG]

    No reason you couldn't get 15$ pre hen @ the least! I paid 12$ for my POL pullets last yr.. Around here, it so hard to find healthy young hens that are laying and POL pullets... Just throw the rooster in for free... Or maybe ask for 75$ for the lot!
