    Sorry, I didn't know where to put this.

    How much should I charge for a young pair of black sumatras? They are 7 months old just begining to lay(haven't checked fertility)

    Thanks

    For pet quality sumatras.. young and ready to lay... I would price them on craigslist around $25. If they were show quality.. maybe more like $50.

    Hatchery type 1 or 2 spurs per leg I seen go for $10.00 and up.
    Show Quality $30.00 and up. (more spurs, more higher the price)

    When pricing, I would also consider the color of the face and comb. The darker the comb and face, should bring more money.

    I don't know about Sumatra's, but I know my large fowl goes thru at least a bag of feed by that age. So I usually want at least $15. And depending on the breed, $25 is a very fair price. But, again I do not know the going rate of Sumatra's and the area that you live definitely has some say in what you charge. My Post Office is 5 mins away. I can see people driving 15 or 20 mins one way, and I would charge for my time.
