    I am thinking of selling this rooster at a show coming up. He is a Black Cochin Bantam cockerel. What should I ask for him?

    What are his faults? Why are you selling him? This will help you figure out what to ask.

    He is worth as much as somebody will pay you.

    He is beautiful. I just paid $ 45.00 for a very nice Cochin Rooster. The one I bought was Mottled and two years old, so I don't know if that matters. If there are people looking for a Rooster then you should do well. I have seen similar quality Roosters go for upwards of $ 60 on eggbid and people still have to pay at least $50 to ship them.

    Hope this gives you a little idea of what to ask for him.

    I agree with Jiminjay but would like to add....If you are desperate to unload him you may want to go $20. You can come across decent roos free. That said, I think he is more than decent so $20 - $40?
