I recently ordered a few too many Cornish Cross chicks. I want to sell or trade a few of them. I also will have 2 Black Giant Roosters. How much are adult chickens selling for now? I am having a hard time finding that information. Thanks!

It depends where you are located, and that determines the price of the birds. Where I lived in New Mexico, I had a hard time giving away roosters because people couldn't keep them in some areas. Where I live now, you can get $10 for a good looking rooster. Cornish Cross are another ball of wax entirely because city people want pet hens that give them eggs, and do not want to butcher a meat bird after 8 to 10 weeks. So it would have to be sold to someone who butchers chickens. A cornish cross is worth more the older it is. I personally would pay $2.50 for a week old cornish, and $4 for an 8 week old cornish. But I'm pretty cheap. Check Cackle Hatcheries price on cornish, and calculate in the shipping.

Roosters are free here in S.C., I have been given 10 rooster, not all at once, because they can not be kelp in the city.
I even got ten hen free, because the soldier could not ship them.
