    I have a trio of standard black cochins that I'm thinking of selling. They are 21 weeks old, have not started laying yet (as of this morning), and are pretty docile. One roo, two hens. No shipping.

    Same thing for the Buffs. Trio, 21 weeks, not laying yet, and docile. A little more silly and personable than the cochins.

    What would you charge? Would you wait until they are laying and ask more?

    I need to raise money quite quickly for my car, otherwise I won't have a car, and therefore I won't have a job. I'm trying to figure out what I can sell and how much to charge.

    Thanks for your help,
    Emily
