    That is a great price! Not one you are likely to pay but i would sure buy some at that! Sorry...try more like $1.25 or so depending on location location location...and of course quailty of bird...for true ones and not EE's that price will go up

    LOL! You'll never find chicks for .25 cents unless they are a mixed breed, and even then not likely! The lowest I have ever found being askes was 1.50.

    You do know that Americauna's/Auracanas will probably not end up being what you get, right. Hatcheries and people who aren't educated on the difference sell them as those, but 99 percent of the time they are EE's.
