ya i make all kinds of $ from it,,,it started out with a "gift" rooster, then 3 "gift" RIR ,, had them out in the front yard ( where i live i get alot of traffic in morning and night from people going to work) and people kept stopping asking to buy my birds,,so i FINALLY found a person who hatched em,, and i buy them from her for $1.50 , and sell them for $3 ,, and i cant keep enough here,, last week i bought and sold her last 100 chicks, and 60 guineas ,, so now i need to look for MORE birds, this weekend i had to tell over 20 people i didnt have any left for sale

but i also live on the outskirts of a city of 250k people, so i wouldnt expect that much from smaller towns.
i sell chickens, 2 kinds of pheasants, guineas, and peafowl.
and i only do it to afford MY birds,,hehe,, if they cant do work, they better be able to make money,,lol

Wow!! Sounds like you have quite the little roadside stand!!

I was hoping to get a 'bator and hatch chicks to add a few to my own flock and then sell the extras on Craigslist. Don't imagine I'll get rich, but maybe enough for a bag of feed or two!

Wow!!! that was fast. I ordered through a feed store that orders from Ideal and they siad mine won't come until the 15th of Oct. I ordered 25 buff-o's. I too hope they are a good company. I can not get on their web site. How old are the chickens you sell? I live in NC. and can't possible use as many as I ordered. AT what age is it good to start selling them. The ones I have left will be pets and layers. Sigh can't wait for my first chicks Jean

i sell mine after their a week old,,once they hit 4 months the price goes up,,, but i cant keep enough to get them that old,,haha ,, next month,, i wont let them go until their 3 weeks old,, just because of the weather, its warm warm here, so i only keep them in the brooder for a week, then they go out in the front yard.( alot of people say keep them in the brooder longer,, and i would suggest to do what they say, cause im no "chicken pro",, but i have only lost 1 or 2 birds after putting them outside.
