Okay, so regardless of chicken math, I'm up to more than 60 chickens! I need to reduce by at least 10 or so. Of course, I love them all so it's going to be hard. My main problem is, how much do I charge for my pairs? I have a pair of blue lemon Cochins, just coming of age to be productive, and a younger pair of lavender orpingtons. I also have some partridge and blue partridge hens that I'm going to have to part with, all either laying or almost old enough to start. These are all fairly rare birds, so I don't have a clue how much to ask.

Can anybody help? - Thanks!

Rarity of color isn't everything. In fact, it's just the tip of the iceberg. What quality are the birds? That will make a big difference in your potential market -- and the price you can successfully get for them.

You'll probably have a better chance of selling them if you don't sell them in pairs. Most people don't want roosters.
