NO MONEY? NO PROBLEM LET'S SWAP FOR STUFF!
We trade chickens based on our needs and the value of the items we wish to trade. Here at Blue Star, we are embracing the "new" concept of bartering. We BOTH WIN! You may have a talent or skill that you want to trade for your new flock of hens. Or maybe you are in the service industry. Perhaps there are old hobbies that are collecting dust on your closet shelf. Some folks even pay high storage fees every month for stuff they no longer need.
Over the years in raising chickens I have discovered that they are a really valuable commodity. Chickens cannot be replaced with technology and therefore actually retain their value. Even as much as real “money.” One chicken can produce hundreds of dollars in eggs and be used for meat at the end of productivity. A small flock will produce very valuable fertilizer for your garden.
Bartering is even older than money and a really useful skill to learn and to pass on to your family. We do accept cash, credit cards, barter for the purchase or exchange of chickens.
We do consider bartering sometimes as well. Bartering is older than money. We don't haggle on prices. And we will both walk away happy! You can choose the breeds of chickens that you want and ages, we get products or services in return. Lets swap or trade
