Ive made the heartbreaking decision to sell my flock. I have no time or $ since I'm building a house. How do you figure what they are worth? They are all different ages and breeds.
Same here in Tennessee, the price on pullets goes up and after age 18 months or so.. the price drops especially as the hen ages. good place for prices in your area is CL- unless you have a very special breed.Around here, NW Alabama, most full grown chickens sell for $8-$10 each. I sold some chicks for $2 each and some month olds for $5.
Wow! I'm coming out there if I ever want to sell hens!I've just sold 15ish birds. New layers, had only been laying 2-3 months, I got $20 each. They were mixed breed hens. 2 year old hens that had started laying again after the winter went for $10 each. They were hatchery birds. I gave price breaks on multiple birds.
It's just a balance between do you want to get the most money for them and take your time, or just discount the entire flock and get rid of them.
