    i saw on craigslist muscovies hatched in august, $2 each, is this a good price for the at that age? are they almost mature and able to lay eggs?

    That is cheap in my area except when I was lucky enough to get some free. They run 15-30$ for non show quality.

    That is inexpensive. My first pair of hens started laying at 4mths but back then it was warm weather.. mind you the one is still laying despite awful temps..(double digit minus) and the other on/off.. so it seems to depend on the bird.

    Thats cheap but they are not almost mature and no where near ready to lay eggs.
