    I have obtained numerous chickens in the past couple of days....with more due to hatch in the next week or two....and more eggs possibly on the way....IF I have to sale some, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in them.

    I have some pullets (about 8 wks old)....their mothers were either a RIR or Buff Orpington as were their fathers....so they would either be 100% BO or 100% RIR or 1/2 of each. Would anyone be interested in them?

    DH is very understanding right now, but....I may be pushing him with my infatuation.... [​IMG]

    You could try posting in your local craigslist. I've had good luck with that.

    I looked up my closest craiglist....(listing is of a place 2 hours from me and in a diff. state)....nothing close to me [​IMG]. Not sure anyone would travel this far....

    As for price.....?? No clue. I've never sold chickens before....How much do they normally sell for? [​IMG]

    Oh, for craigslist, it doesn't have to be in your city. You choose the city that is closest to you and post there. It's community run. In the seattle craigslist, people on eastern WA post in it. That's like 300 miles away.

    For pricing, I would go with what you think is reasonable. I sell day old chicks for 2-5 dollars depending on type and quality of bird, with pullets being 15 or so and year old hens being 10 or so. Roosters I just sell butchered for $2 a lb.

    Bumping this up just in case. I candled my bator eggs last night and 16 of the 20 have moving chicks inside [​IMG]! If they all make it, that will make 42 chickens for us!! The ones in my bator are black sexlink and brown leghorn mix. Would anyone be interested in those?
