Well i have decided that 7 layer hens is TOO many eggs for just me and my girlfriend. So, as of now, i have come to terms with letting 2 go. Yes i know, it is as hard for me as it is hard for you reading this...lol. They are not all that special tho, the 2 i want to get rid of came from a st. run rural king bin in the spring and the other was traded to me as a pullet in a BYC meet up party. They are all about a year old as of now. Here are my layer hen's so you can tell me if you think im picking the right two, "even tho you don't personally KNOW my chickens" lol Barred rock Buff O White Rock SLW Australorp..s/p? lol Golden Sex Link Speckled Sussex The two that i have chose to go are the Barred rock and the SLW. No real reason, i have just had bad luck with Wayondotte's and their attitudes, and Barred rock's "to me" are just REALLY easy to come by. Now, onto the point of this thread. What do you think i should charge for them??? Now back when they were still pullet's yet to lay, i sold some extra girls i know i was not going to need. Then i was selling them at about 10 to 12 bucks a piece. Everyone told me that that seemed like a fair price to them, especially since they were close laying age. So now it's winter with snow and ice everywhere and the girls are still cranking out the eggs. Especially that Barred Rock, shes is a Double Yolk'er MACHINE! I'm just more of a darker brown egg eatin kinda guy, so my Australorp takes good care of me there. Now i had listened to a few of the chicken whisper's radio shows and few times now he has mentioned selling hen's and for what price. He said a few things along these lines, " Im not going to let a laying hen go for just a few bucks now, people need to get with it and realize what it took to get your animal where it is at right now. You hatched it in your incubator you bought, you hand raised it..every day of it's life. You bought the feeder's, you bought the waterers, you bought the pine shaveings for bedding, you bought the good quality feed, you put a roof over it's head, and im sure you even feed it our expensive "human" scraps that you also payed for right from your kitchen. When i go to sell my hen's i raised from day one, you bet your bottom dollar im going to get 20 to 30 bucks a hen. Now to me, that makes ALOT of sense. So im starting to believe that selling them for the prices i have thought of below are good/fair ones. Barred rock Hen $25 SLW Hen $25 or Both together for $40 Then we have the slightly more option Barred rock Hen $30 SLW Hen $30 or Both for $50 Or you guy's could think im being WAY to pricey and i should sell for less, i don't know. But that's why i decided to make this thread, so that from now on, i will know how to price my hen's in the future. Can't wait to see all of your opinion's...and for your viewing pleasure, i remembered that i took a funny picture of my barred rock back last early spring. Thanks again.
