    Depends on what people are willing to pay. [​IMG]

    Around here--I just saw a guy selling 2 ganders & 4 geese (pet-quality) Pilgrims for $60 for all.

    On the flip side--I have an extra, (prospective SQ) Giant African Dewlap young gander that I can't even GIVE away. [​IMG]

    That said--near the larger cities, things tend to go closer to their real market value. I'd say $20-$30 for pet-geese....[​IMG]

    Thanks, no. I'm not giving them up or selling them.

    Just need a theoretical real world market value.

    I spent two hours tonight putting a polycarbonate roof on the new top of my turkey pen. They spent two hours under foot and tugging on my pants and shirt, and trying to steal my drill bit because its on an orange bungee.

    How could I give up that?[​IMG]

    Absolutely right - you couldn't pay to have someone give you so much attention, haha.

    It depends upon if you are selling or buying.

    Always, if I am trying to buy, I can't find anything nice for less than a small fortune. If I am selling, I can't give it away.

    A big problem is proximity. It's too expensive to ship them so you must have local buyers who are interested in your breed of poultry.

    I've stopped worrying about it. I buy what makes me happy and I plan to eat the extras if nobody wants to buy.

    Rare Feathers Farm, I am sorry I can't take on another breed. Your gander sounds lovely.
