    I have some RIR chicks and was wondering, Can I sell them at 12 weeks old? Are they too young to sell at an auction and can they get to stressed at that age?

    Thanks ;)

    They are old enough to sell. But I don't think an auction is the way to get the best price. They are worth around $15 at this age. I list mine on Craig's List and always get my price. An auction would be stressful for them and you have no say in who will get them or how they will be treated.

    Agree. Sell them on CL. You'll be lucky to get $4-5 each at auction. I can sell pullets all day long for $15-20.
