    Hi Ya'll
    I didn't know where to put this so if it needs to be moved,. please do,..
    I am just curious as to why these are so valuable? [​IMG]
    Does anybody on BYC have this breed or is familiar with this chicken?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/SILVER-SUSSEX-H...ltDomain_0&hash=item33617a02b3#ht_3566wt_1135

    I'm always looking for the rare and unusual,... but that's a lot of money and I don't know if it's just a bidding war by folks that were looking for that breed or are they always this much money?

    Thanks

    Probably a new variety. I remember a few months ago when someone had listed silver-laced brahmas I believe they were...those eggs went for over $800 if I remember correctly.

    $800.00!!?? [​IMG]

    It almost seems like it would be less expensive to breed your own.

    I wonder if those new varieties breed true,... it would be a huge disappointment if they didn't.

    Now I want to see a silver-laced brahma,...[​IMG]

    Roo has some pretty to him, love that wreath of black feathers around the shoulders... come to think of it it kinda reminds me of Cruella wearing a fur... yikes... anywho, they're interesting, even pretty, but that's not my primary concern when it comes to chickens so no way would I splurge on that.

    Nice to see the NPIP/GPIP certificate though...
