    It is out of *my* price range, but if it's a big name breeder, people will pay that and more. My heck, look at that violet silkie hen that just went for over $1k. For a chicken! [​IMG]

    Not in my budget. ;-)

    that is quite steep, i paid 60 for a kelso/sweater stag, but from a good line, a 100 is expensive, i think

    Wow! I'm glad I got some really good Silkies for a lot less!

    Can you see someone accidentally dropping one? [​IMG]
