    I usually see chicks to 2 weeks offered for 4$ on CL locally.
    Id add about $1-$1.50 per week after 2 weeks, if it were me.
    Adult birds with full plumage are much more seldomly seen listed, but usually around $20, that I see . . .


    I think this is the general rule of thumb for any kind of "common" poultry/gamebird.

    Young chicks or adult pairs is what most folks tend to want to buy . . .

    First year birds are from 20-30 depending on your stock. Beautiful breeders get about $40 each. Sometimes hens fetch a little more, but again it helps if folks know you are not just a backyard breeders and have put some time into genetics, culling etc. Time of year will effect prices. Fall they are at their lowest as the market is flooded. Spring, fetches the highest as breeders have over wintered them (more food and risk) and they are about to produce. I hope this helps.

    p.s. I don't deal with chicks so I have no idea what you will get. eggs run from 3-5 each, so I'd suspect chicks slightly higher. There is risk with shipping, so probably not much more.
