    Not sure this is the right place for this post, if it isn't in the correct place, feel free to move it, and please let me know where it will be moved to. Thanks in advance!

    I was very lucky with my last hatch of Welsummer's.
    I ended up with 11 pullets and 5 cockerals.
    I would like to sell them as breeding trio's. Problem is....here in this state Welsummer prices are absurd and I would like to offer these birds at a reasonable price.
    Any suggestions on a fair price?
    They will be sold at the age of 5 months.

    Thanks!

    I got mine here in CA for $8.00 each
    Edited to add when laying they go for $12.00 to $15.00 each

    Well, my experience was that I bought 2 Welsummer hens about 2 weeks before they started to lay. I paid $15 each. My friend bought a trio (2 hens and a roo) for $35. That's here in Ohio from a registered breeder who has had 4-H champions.
