    Hi,
    Be ready to quote heritage on them to buyers. Charge 2x as much for the 3 week olds as for the baby chicks. I this color correctness of pattern matters. That's why knowing buyers will query you on the bird's ancestors. Check around the Net and see what they are selling for. Check the BYC auction archive for prices. Average 5 prices together and use that number.
    Best,
    Karen

    Thanks for the information. How about the ones that didn't turn out blue red. The splash and black/gold how much should I price them?[​IMG]
