I am looking for some Plymouth Barred Rock chickens/chicks in the Western Kentucky area. I will drive to eastern Missouri, western/middle Tennessee, or southern Illinois. I want some hens/pullets and an unrelated roo/cockerel. I plan to breed. I’ve messaged some people on the breeder directory about hatching eggs, but I’d honestly rather have already hatched birds. No one on the breeders directory sells barred rocks in my area.

Honestly I’m not sure what to charge. Hatcheries charge $40 per 8 week old pullets but that includes shipping. Do you have any experience in buying pullets? Mine are 16 weeks old and will start laying in a month or so. Is $25 a bird too much?

Something to take into account is where you got them from. I would pay less for hatchery stock and more for breeder birds. Hatcheries tend to breed quantity over quality. Once it clears up outside (it’s raining cats and dogs where I am) I would appreciate some pictures. Pictures are going to determine how much I think they are worth.

I am looking for well bred birds. I’m not super worried about where you got them from. I’m more worried about how they look and if they have the specific qualities they were bred to have. For example how the comb looks, beak color, legs color, and plumage.

I’m sorry, but I’m going to hold off. You’re the only person who has contacted me so far. Their plumage isn’t really what I would like it to be and I am going to search a little more. I appreciate your offer, though.
