    Question???

    I had been dying for white orps from HinkJc for a year-This past Feb I got eggs and got lucky enough to get a pullet and a roo. They are 5 months old right now and GORGEOUS--I couldnt have asked for a whiter beautiful pair...pictures coming later today-any hoo. I have to severely cut down what I have and If the price is right, sell this breeding pair:-( I dont really want to but since I didnt manage to hatch out more pullets ( my bator rots!) I figure I better cut down on the crowing too-She's at POL-in fact shes managed to lay and egg or two but has since stopped in the last week or two-heat probably.

    what would you charge for them?

    who wants to know?
    hmm...we had white orps that were about a year old and we sold them for $40
    you have very pretty chickens, so maybe around $20?

    Though, I think you could probably get $60 for the pair.

Just to get mroe pullets-I will have them in a small breeder pen by Fall seperated from the rest for purity, If I dont sell them-I was thinking 40-50$ [​IMG]
