Pet quality?  You can get them from a hatchery for about $3.00

2B (Broodys) + E (eggs)+ BE (Bator Eggs) = P (peeps) X HO (hatchery order)= SNEP (still not enough peeps) No matter what the scipher method you use it always comes up short.

Under 10.00 for sure... I've been selling SQ and PQ birds for $5.00 just because I have so many and need to make room... I could probably get 3-4 times more out of most of mine if I had the room and could wait for the right buyers.

Around here you get "pet" quality silkies any where from 1.00 to 6.00 and that is for pullet staring to lay and older..
