    Sadly I am having to sell my little flock of chickens, since we may be moving out of state and won't be able to take them. I have 2 standards ( Buff Orpingtons ), 5 Bantams ( Mille Fleur hen, Light Brahma pullet, Partridge Cochin pullet, Self Blue oeg pullet, and a Silver Duckwing oeg pullet ) , and a Turkey ( Broad Breasted Bronze Tom ). I have no clue how much to ask for all of them. Any thoughts?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Depends on your area. Check local Craigslist to find out the average prices of hens in your area, then ask a bit more for yours since they're purebred and more unusual breeds.

    Around here it's usually $10-$15 for a laying hen or point-of-lay pullet

    $5 for young birds, spent hens or mixed-breds

    $10 each for the hens around here, maybe $15 in the winter or if its a breed someone really wants.
