    they look like leghorns... no idea why they're $200.... [​IMG]
     
  3. leghorns? no.
     
  4. [​IMG] I don't know what the breed is but, I am almost certain that they are not leghorns.

    They certainly do not look any leghorns that I have. [​IMG]
    Maybe mine don't look like leghorns though [​IMG]

    2. No PETA or Cock fighting posts, period!

    They are Oriental gamefowl.. Gamefowl are higher than most breeds in prices.. Then there's a lot of the production breeds are high as well in the show quality form.. Nothing to be alarmed about really. I don't know much about oriental gamefowl but they look more like young (Or miniature) Thais than Asils (Or Aseels, Whichever you prefer) But i could be wrong.

    Yes oriental game fowl, breed mostly for fighting, reason for the price also.
