    I will be entering 3 young Emben geese in our county Fair. One gander, two geese. Hatched last spring, about 9 months old. I would like to sell them all, together or separately. What would be a fair price to ask? Or should I ask people to make offers & take the highest?

    This is not a big fancy professional poultry show, but a LOT of people come through looking to buy birds. I've been able to sell POL purebred pullets for $25-$30. But I've never shown or sold geese here. Of course, I'd like to get the best price I can for them, to help pay for everyone else's feed back home.

    Thank you for your imput.

    hmmm I was at a poultry show in late fall and they were asking 75. for a trio of chinese...and embdens are more expensive so I would say maybe $120. for the trio or maybe 50. a piece....I would pay it for Embdens.

    I bought three full grown toulouse. one being full dewlap, one mixed dewlap and one straight toulouse. I paid $30 each. I am so tempted to buy some embdens but only have an acre so I must behave [​IMG]
