    I have a silver lace and 2 golden lace Wyandotte roosters. I want to sell them when they are 6 – 8 weeks old. How much should I ask for them? 2 have red Wattles and one has pink wattles. one has a red comb one has a pink comb. I want to wait until all combs turn red so I will be sure they are roosters. They are 4 weeks old now.

    It's hard to sell cockerels for much of anything unless they are from breeder or show stock. $5-$10 each, at the most.

    Wyandottes tend to show large combs and wattles at a young age - the growth and redness I would consider highly suspicious on most breeds is pretty normal for Wyandottes. I would suggest waiting until they begin to develop saddle feathers before selling them. Wyandottes tend to feather out young, usually at 8-10 weeks.
