I have only seen a few advertisements for laying hens, and they are usually already gone by the time I call on them. I think it depends on the age of the layer. I called on six (14 months) 1 year old golden sex links with feed, waterer and feeder for $25...I thought that was a real steal but they were already gone after only 30 minutes on Craigslist. The folks said they had to get rid of them fast because they were moving. I think that $10-12 is about the normal rate around here for a young layer, you can't give them away if they are older than 3 years old. Mine are 18 weeks old now so, I'm just going to wait for them to lay themselves instead of trying to add to my flock. Good luck!
