    So I have some young Royal Palm poults. They were hatched this past Spring. I know how much I paid when I bought my breeding pair, but am wondering how much I should sell the young ones for now. I have one person wanting just a male and another wanting a pair... Lucky me, I have two males and one female I would like to sell, so I figured I would go ahead and sell now and not wait until Spring like I had planned. Only problem is I dont know a fair price. I know that that feed store (yuck) sells their day-old poults for $11... so I would want to get more than that I think since I have months into feeding/caring for these things. And.. they are not hatchery birds. One was hatched from my own stock and the males were hatched from another breeders stock. Any suggestions?? Thanks Guys and Gals!!

    Adult palms in my area go for about $35-40 range. That age about $25

    I see alot of people ask for $50 a turkey up to $150 for a pair. I just wonder how many they really sell. Everyone wants a deal. At the sells they only get $15 to $20 for good size turkeys (about 6 months old). Its a shame.

    Well... I decided to ask $70 for the pair, and $30 for a tom and $45 for a hen seperately. Then I feel I am setting the price high enough I can let the person "talk" me down and feel as if they are getting a deal. I don't have many for sale and I am pretty sure that the 3 birds I am selling are pretty much sold already. I guess I'll just let the buyers decide if the birds are worth it [​IMG]

    My 2 month old Bourbon Red poults sold for $20.00 a piece.. I don't know if that helps or not. One customer bought 4 and then came back for 2 more 1 week old babies.
