: They guarantee 40 live birds, but people seem to get around 50 (or even more) pretty frequently, so ~$1.63 to ~$1.30 per bird, or even less. It's a pretty great deal as long as you're open to a bit of a grab bag. A lot of people have posted pictures of their assortments and compared their M/F ratios, etc, if you look back a few pages.
EDIT: Oh, and that includes shipping. Even when you can find a comparable deal (in terms of variety) from another hatchery, they all charge shipping on top of that.
