So I'm saving my 5 heritage birds for brood stock for next year. I have 1 bronze (eastern cross?) tom, 3 naragansett hens (2 light, one slightly darker), and a blue slate hen. All were hatched in May/June. A co-worker of my wife has a lonely tom, and needs a new hen. How do I determine the value of a semi-mature hen? I told my wife that I wanted to get some eggs from all of the hens prior to selling any of them. Not really interested in selling a brood stock bird, but... (the blue slate hen is the oddball, and I wouldn't have an issue giving her up. She was my bonus bird for buying 4 poults for $10 each.) What should I expect to pay for the tom, and should I counter-offer with 3 or 4 poults for the tom? This way they could start a new flock, and I could gain an experienced tom. Thanks!
