    I have a lady wanting to buy some adult mixed breed hens. I am offering 4
    - 1 Buff Orpington / Leghorn
    - 1 Americana / Polish
    - 1 Americana / Polish / Cochin
    -1 Americana / Cochin

    I have no idea what to charge for them. 1 of them was hatched early last year the other 3 were fall babies. Any Advice
    I would post pics but have not figured out how to post them on here

    thanks so much. We have always given them away before and decided to start charging this year. What about Turkey and Geese?

    You'll have to check out your local craigslist or feed store postings to see what they go for in your area. A bird in city A can go for 25 no questions asked and snapped up like candy, while the same bird in city B will barely fetch $5.
