The guy I bought mine from I think charged $2 for the tiny chicks and $3 for the ones that were old enough to be sexed. Those were for the regular brown coturnix. He charged a bit more for the white ones. I am not sure how much he charged for the ones that were ready to be eaten.

The market in your area will decide for you more or less. I live in an extremely expensive area that happens to have a decent demand for back yard coturnix. My chicks are between $3.50-5/ each depending on quantity purchased. Adults hens are $7.50-10 depending on quantity. Two hours away from me, around Sacramento, chicks never go for more than $2.50 and adults rarely more than $5.

as mentioned market drives the price
I get $4 for adults
I live in a area where people sell them for $2.50-$3
people tell me this all the time.... and I tell them
I produce nice birds and put a bunch of my time into them
thats great that they can sell at that price but I cant
some people appreciate quality some people dont

I know a guy who sells coturnix for $2 each at a local swap
by the end of the day they are $1, however his birds are stacked 3-4 deep in cages
probably 40 birds in a 2x2 cage
I wouldnt touch one of those birds with a ten foot pole

our local grocery store sells quail $6 for a pack of 4

What species do you have? Based on most of the comments so far, they are assuming you are refering to coturnix.
