    It might help if you give a little info, like where you are located and what breeds you may be interested in , and if you want bantam or standard. Just trying to help.....[​IMG]

    you also may want to exactly state what you mean by "cheap". Good young laying hens take some money to raise and worth more. You are to cheap you may end up with old hens about to stop laying or ones not laying at all. Just wanted to throw this your way.

    like five dollars for pullets gettin ready to lay or just started laying.

    Edited as we do not allow personal location info in open forum.

    At 8 -10 weeks old, I get $10 for pullets. $5 wouldn't even cover feed costs. Maybe you should look into getting sexed pullets from a hatchery and raise them yourself.

    First things first, I would edit that and get your address off the internet IMMEDIATELY!! Second, that seems like REALLY cheap for young pullets about to lay.

    Where are you located? You might try some auctions or craigslist. I get at least $10 for mixed breed pullets and my purebreeds are $15 each.
