    I need to sell my geese and am trying to price them accordingly.

    I have one pair of Roman tufted that are from Metzers. I priced them at $75 for the pair. I paid $20 each at a couple of days old. They are now about 5 months old.

    I also have a single Pilgrim Gander. He is 7 months old. He was the only one I had hatch out of a dozen or so eggs. As day olds, they go for $25, so I priced him at $50.

    Are my prices reasonable? If I cant sell them for a fair amount, I will keep them..I dont want to give them away..

    Here are a couple pics..

    Im no goose expert.. Might be the pics.. but Tufted Romans are supoise to have Pinkish Bills and Orange feet? I cant tell for sure from the pics.. I sell most of my Geese for $25-$35ea if they are Ok birds... I sell Extra males for $15... I usually just need them gone though.. If you find the right person thats wants them your prices are fine..

    There's a lot more that goes into pricing an adult bird that simply increasing the gosling price. I'm not familiar with the breed standards of these two breeds so won't comment on the birds themselves, but you should be pricing according to the individual bird's quality and potential.
