    There is a lady near me who has to downsize her flock. Earlier this week I picked up a Royal Palm turkey hen and 2 easter eggers from her. All of them are healthy and very social. She has full sized cochins that I'm also interested in. She has 2 of the gray hens, 1 black hen. and 2 of the "splash" that she believes are roos. I wasn't really interested in the roos but again, she's not sure. But I'll take them anyway. She would like $8 each. Does that seem like a good deal?? Thanks.

    Depends on the quality, but I paid $20 each for Breeding Quality Birds so yes $8 is a good deal

    $8.00 is definitely a good deal. If they were mine I would charge more than that, so I say snap em up if they are healthy and well taken care of.

    I agree. I think $8 is a really good deal. I say jump on the offer.
