    Sorry, don't have any for sale, but I saw in a different post you are in MIlan. Well, hi neighbor... We are in Milan, too. I will have bantams in the spring, if you want. We are outside Milan in Milan Township... Might we know each other??? Kathy Tucker

    Quote:Any idea what an average cost for a bantam might be? Just hypothetically speaking, of course.

    It all depends.

    Last year my daughter bought a cochin bantam for $5.00.

    I have seen close to $50 for a bird.

    My daughter really wanted a call duck...it was $40. Come to find out that was a good deal. But I am not spending that much on a duck!

    I wish we could have ducks but we just don't have the room. Hardly anyone in our county raises them for 4-H. There were only a couple of duck pens at the fair. No competition there at all.

    Prices don't seem too bad. I really want to pick up a Polish and a Serama pullet. Maybe we'll get lucky [​IMG]

    Theres a lady in Rose City, but thats about 3 to 4 hours from you.

    i got 3 from her for 2.00 a piece, I was up there picking up girls from Camp, and she had a sign front of her house.

    she is on M31, just east of I-75

    There's a guy in St. Clair that has d'uccles and OEGs. His ad ran on bestfarmbuys.com I was really tempted - he sent me some cute photos - but it's really too much of a drive for me.

    Thanks for the info. I'm beginning to think I'm on the wrong side of the state for chickens.
