    I will be selling my breeding trio of khaki campbells next spring once.my welsh harlequins are laying. I was wondering how much I should ask for them? I have two girls and a boy, both girls lay REALLY well, I get almost a egg a day from both, but im not sure how much to ask for them? Is $30.00 to much? BTW these are PQ (pet quality) ducks.

    I would ask 7-8 each for them, but that is based on our market.

    Seriously? A point of lay chicken hen will bring $25 in the spring. I'd think that a young laying duck, early in the spring ought to bring more than $7. Heck, those ducks probably cost $7 apiece when they were day olds, if you include the shipping costs.

    I suggest that you start higher. You can always drop the price if you don't get a response.

    I could probably get $35 for the trio in my area.

    I looked on craigslist and I saw laying scovies for 12 bucks a duck. I just kinda confused? What should I sell them for? The two girls lay very well, I get one eggs a day from both. I was think something like $35 for the three too.
