    I have Chinese geese eggs in the incubator & I'm selling the goslings but I have no idea how much they go for? I don't want to charge too much!

    My day old Toulouse goslings from Ideal Poultry cost me $14.50 apiece, if that helps. [​IMG]

    Yep, I ordered them from an eBay auction...there's only like 2 people on there still selling them. Before I posted this I was thinking $6 each but I'm starting to think maybe that's a little low?

    I paid 8 for mine that were 2 weeks old. The older they are the price goes up.

    It completely depends upon the quality. Exhibition potential go for more than hatchery quality. Sometimes a lot more.

    To sell show potential geese, you have to do some marketing. It's going to be more difficult to sell backyard pet quality this time of year as people tend to be cutting back on the feed bill for winter.

    most of the big hatcheries are selling standard grade chinese goslings at $9-12 last time I checked. I paid $9 this summer from a local breeder.

    Quote:If you honestly don't want to keep them, sell them for what you think you can get. In my area I can't get more than $6 for any day-old gosling, and that's in the spring!
