    I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I would like to know if anybody knows what type of chick's I would get from chocolate cuckoo orpington roos over gold laced orpington hens. Chick's turned out black and yellow and chocolate and yellow. Tia

    Welcome to BYC and contgrats on the chicks.
    The chicks will be a bit of a mixed bag, they won't be sex linked if that is what you were hoping for.

    Thanks for the welcome. Any idea of I should sell them for? I know what I paid from the parents but the chick's are a cross.Tia

    Hard question.

    General location you are in? (Don't answer, but it can make a
    difference in price...supply and demand)

    Now the biggie...what would you LIKE to sell them for? Each. or
    price as a lot.

    What is the bottom dollar? Don't start there. But know where you
    need to stop.

    Are you willing to ship? Probably not?

    chocolate and yellow sounds neat but, you have to find buyers that think so too. You could test the water by listing them at a certain price. If he takers lower the price , etc.
