    There's a guy at my boyfriend's work selling unsexed Chinese Ringneck Pheasant chicks, 2 for $85ish. I want to know if this is a good price or too much. To me I'm thinking it sounds like a lot for unsexed chicks.

    Eh, I wouldn't pay that much. Eggs go for around $.70 here, so I'm sure you could manage to hatch and keep more than two alive out of the 121 eggs you'd be able to purchase.

    Yes, wow if I was getting $85 for 2, this batch of a few thousand, would bring me a 1/4 mill. [​IMG]

    Around here (in AK) young chicks go for about $2.50 each when just buying a few here and there. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help. I'm going to have my boyfriend talk to him and see if he can talk some sense into the guy, even if I don't buy birds from him.
