    How much would you sell this breeds for as day old chicks, 2 weeks old, 2 months and then pullet? The breeds are barred rock, mixed, black rose comb bantams, white silkies, white rocks, amercanas, old english bantams, and cornish x bantams?

    Well, there are a lot of variables there. What quality stock do they come from? On LF pet birds, I have charged between $2 and $5 for day old chicks - might go around $8 for 2 month olds.......SQ silkies (for example) go a lot higher, etc etc

    IMO-- look at the hatchery prices for each, as well as prices at your local Co-op or Tractor Supply etc... and beat them...
