Really depends on the breeds, and probaly your area. I know Old english Game Bantys, are about 10 to 15 dollars a pair around here.

Depends on which perspective you look at them:

Laying: Bantams are fair layers but since their eggs are small, there isn't a high demand for tiny eggs, though some don't lay as often as the standard breeds. So as far as laying, they are not worth a whole lot.

Show: Most bantams are used for shows and exhibition. The quality of the bird would have a major affect on the price. IMO, bantams are worth more as show birds rather than layers. Breed demand also has some affect since some breeds are rarer than others.

Hope this helped. smile

I'd say get 'em if you are really considering it. That's kind of cheap. Don't waste the opportunity! big_smile
