    I give up on my mean as heck Tom and have decided to list him and his mate on Craigs list.
    How much is a fair price for the pair? They were hatched in 08. I hatched 19 poults out of them the first year but didnt try last year.
    and should I disclose that the tom is aggressive?
    I have them locked in a horse stall and its just not right IMO to live that way.
    They are Bourbon Reds...

    Around these parts they go anywhere from $100+ for a good pair. I was paying $15 per poult last spring.

    Here in East Texas they would go for $90.00-100.00. I would disclose that he is aggressive. Why don't you eat him and get a new tom? Most are not aggressive.

    Or try being aggressive back to him in a way that he doesn't know how to fight back, like when he charges you, catch him and flip'im over and scrub him on in the ground and ruff him up good where he doesn't know what the heck is going on and wants no part of you after that. I've broken the aggression from a few birds that way.

    But as far as prices, around here, a pair sells for $50 -$100
