In my opinion , to be a reputable quality breeder you need not worry about what the chicks will cost. You need to research the breed, know the SOP inside and out for the breed. Have a good breeder set up, and hatch the first year to see the quality of your birds. Sell the first years chicks as pets only until you actually know what your stage of quality is. Selling just any ole chick is not quality breeding. Chicks like that should only be sold for $2 a chicks in my opinion. But quality bred chicks and genetics sell for LOTS more. After getting your flocks quality where you want it then it would be good to join a breeders club or association, which will get your name and flock out there for people looking purposely for quality Polish chickens.

As for selling adults and sets, the same applies. Quality is everything. If they come from a bulk hatchery they are worth minimum, quality is everything.
