I’ve bought off CL before but never sold. I got up this morning and posted again. I’ll probably do it again later, and then before bed. There are no other celadon ads in my area that I can find, and I feel $20 for 12 is very cheap for day old celadons. So I’ll see how it goes. If I can’t sell them, we will process the males and maybe keep some hens, I do plan to keep a Tibetan or 2, and maybe one or 2 others. I have the Myshire order placed, I’m pretty excited for them, so I can’t keep many of these guys, and I’ll be processing a few of my almost 7 week old males this week. I was really hoping to sell some of these guys to kind of balance out what I spent on Myshire hahaWow, so glad to hear your hatch is going well. Sooo many different colors, it's cool you get to add a new variety too if you keep one of the Tibetans. I hope you sell lots, I've noticed the quail ads in my area slow down. However I really only check Craigslist with the other sites occasionally. I've been tempted to post an ad for some eggs but just don't have a ton and I'm a little nervous about liability (sounds silly probably).
The weekend always seems to be the best time to sell stuff online.
That’s good to know. I hope to get them out sooner than later, the 21 in there is already a lot haha. If I can’t get them out I’ll need 2 brooders set up.I've sold off of Craigslist and it's just like any other site. Plenty of serious people and plenty of bull lol. $20 for a dozen is about what they sell for in my area. I feel like I see them for $1.50-2 for day to weekolds. Typically they list them as a mix but there is one person localish they sells Celadon birds. I always bought adult birds and have gotten them for a range of prices. I bought some 5 week males that were supposed to be a mix of sexes lol for 24 for $40. Those I bought really just to process though. My Jumbo's were 3 weeks old and 15 hens and 9 males were $90. The Celadons were $3 each since they couldn't be sexed. I see eggs both eating and hatching range from $3-5. Those are the prices that I have found here in Maryland, of course I've only been watching for the past few months.
I saw a hovabator on NJ CL with turner and quail rails in like new condition for $100 bux today. I considered it.Hope you sold a few chicks today. I ended up finding a 1288 Hovabator, it is about ten years old but looked in good shape and supposedly used once. For the price I'm happy if just the turner works though I need to get quail egg holders for it. I'm thinking my next incubation will be in it if everything checks out with it. Tomorrow I will get the NR360 cleaned up and see if TSC will accept the return.
This one was $20 but half the egg holders are broke and it does have some age. I figured for the price it was worth the risk. Pretty sure I got lucky. Someone else was giving away 30 8 week old quail but missed those. Now just need to make sure the incubator holds temp and order the quail egg holders.I saw a hovabator on NJ CL with turner and quail rails in like new condition for $100 bux today. I considered it.
