    I am going to be selling baby chicks. I have Buff Orpingtons and Barred Rocks. I am asking $2.00 per chick. I am not sexing them just selling them as Straight run. I also have blue, white, buff, splash silkiesthat I am selling straight run for $4.00 each(they are nice silkies). My question is do you guys think my price are to high, to low or are they ok???

    nope, not to high. I would probably ask at least 5 for the silkes.

    I would ask at least $5 for the Silkies (nice ones) and $3 for the others if they're pure...depends on your local market though. [​IMG]

    This past spring I asked $5 for BR chicks and $10 for silkie chicks, sold a bunch, as you might be able to tell you cant get many chicks where I am.

    I agree with Kelly - it depends on your market. Our feed store sells sexed chicks for $2.50 each, and you can buy as few as one or as many as all they have.

    i agree with the others. the other point is that you can always lower your prices depending on your market, but if you raise them, buyers will notice. start high and you can always reduce.
