    Looks good! only one thing: $40 each for ducklings and chickens?! [​IMG]
  3. Yes indeed, That is the going rate over here!!!!
    especially the banties, I cant keep up the supply for the demand, i may need to get a bator to breed more little bunkins!!!
    And the white mallard ducks are very rare around here.
    I guess we havent got as many breeders in my area and Im well known to the small breeding community!!!
    The price is exactly the amount which i paid for the foundation breeding stock !!

    It's in Australian dollars...I'm not sure what the exchange rate is there. A typo maybe?
  5. yep, forty whole dollars!!!!!and some people sell them for more than I do!!!even $150 if they are top quality show stock, which mine are ( the foundation stock are show winners)!
    Bear in mind that a dozen free range eggs here costs $5.00 and a dozen fertilized eggs are $25

    40 $$ sounds like an over kill inless some bloodlines are in the mix..
  7. Yes, im sorry that this sounds rich, what do your top silkies sell for over there????
    Honestly im not out to rip anyone off, this is the price that we pay over here!
    perhaps ill have to take the price off the webpage if its going to cause frowns!!
    The bloodlines are the best in the state!!the breeder that i got the parents from won at our biggest show in Australia with them and she sells them after she has bred from them.

    Looks good. I don't think your prices are out of range.

    My layers go for 10-15, and that is what I see them listed for each too.

    As for show birds. I spoke with one lady way back when, and her chicks were $10 each, with her cull roosters up for $15 each.

    Ducklings from the feed store are about 10 bucks a pop. Your regular layer is 3-5.

    Prices really depend on cost of living per area and what is in demand.
