    Just any old roo is around $5. Good type pure breed should be about $15. SQ roos can be from $20 up to who knows where. Ive seen my dad turn down $1500.oo for a roo before.

    What do you mean by "beige collar"? A black Cochin should be solid black with the glossy green sheen to his feathers.

    I attend our local poultry auction every month, and just a basic no frills roo's go pretty dang cheap. anywhere between $ 1.50-4.00, in Oklahoma everybody is pretty cheap. these roo's sell by the hundreds mainly to just 3 or 4 of the main auction rats that resell them to god knows who.

    Quote:More like Arnold Schwarzenegger with feathers. He should have taken it, some one cleaned him out 3 days later in the middle of the night.
