    I didn't exactly know where to put this, as I'm not selling the eggs RIGHT now, but will be soon.

    I've got some good quality Barred Rocks (standard) and some good quality Langshans (black and blue, standard). Can someone help me figure out how much to sell them for?

    I've looked at Eggbid, Ebay and Ovabid, and NOBODY has any Langshans or even Barred Rocks with the same quality as mine. I have half a mind to just wait and sell only the adult stock once they're grown.

    Here are some photos of the Langshans, all 9 months:

    And here is the WORST Barred Rock Pullet. I'm going to be selling her after Spring/Summer just to make sure she won't grow into what I want. She's 8-9 months old:

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Both the Langshans and the Barred Rocks are from showbird lines.

    Very mild. mine walk right up to you and let you pet them like a dog. they are a lg bird, but look bigger becouse they stand so very tall. added plus they lay good too.

    The Langshan is honestly one of the sweetest birds I have ever worked with. The cockerel is so sweet. He walks right up to you every time and will not leave your side for a moment.

    The blue pullet has just recently become more docile, but the black has always been a sweety.

    On the other hand, if the pullet lets out an alarm call when you pick her up, the cockerel WILL come at you, but has never hit me as of yet. I suppose it's a good thing to have in a bird but freaks me out every time.

    My son shows Langshans. We purchased them from F.B. from Okla. if you can figure that out, so we paid dearly.[​IMG] Hatched some out last year, but believe it or not, all were hens. Rooster passed this past fall so we are in need of fertile eggs with hopes of getting a new rooster. I am quite interested in some hatching eggs. Thank you.
