    Since all of my chicks died this spring I wanted to cheer myself up by buying a few beautiful show silkies I saw in online classifies. I just want to gauge the price to make sure I'm not being ripped off or anything.

    So I'll post the pics, tell me how much you would being willing to pay for one of the chicks, and what a bargain (as little as you would expect to pay) price would be.

    Here is a picture of the chicks in question (3 months old)

    And here is a picture of what chicken they came from

    So go ahead, guess the price, it could even be like a game!

    They look like nice quality to me! I'd probably say at least $35 for a 3 month old.
