As backyard quality birds at say 20-24 weeks old then about $30 for pullets is the normal sort of price. If they are better quality then $50 and more. Cockerels generally you can't give them away, so eat them or sell as trios (2 pullets and 1 cockerel),

usually only a person that is showing and winning with their birds consistantly can charge high prices.

will you be vaccinating your birds and are your birds from vaccinated lines? if they are from vaccinated lines and you do not plan to vaccinate then death rates will most likely be high so hence prices should also reflect that.

if you live near me you will be lucky to get $20 per hen no matter how good they are .
