I've got 5 silkie chicks that came from eggs that I bought from a BYC member. They are going to be nice-looking, but not all pure colors. There are two white, non-bearded babies, two partridge (I think they're a pair) and a buff with smutty wings. Shape-wise, they should be quite fluffy with large crests and well-feathered legs/feet. I'm thinking that $5 is a fair price to ask for these chicks. They hatched April 1 and 2, so they're just over 6 weeks old. What do you think? Too much? Too little? Now a little background on where I live... I live in an area where silkies are uncommon, and there are no breeders of any show-quality birds anywhere. Everyone gets their chicks from the feed store in town, or mail-order from the hatcheries. I have a neighbor who was selling already-laying pullets for $10 apiece, and I heard multiple people complaining about the price. "Can you believe $10 for a chicken???" Anyway, it was ridiculous that people would balk at such a low price for a laying hen.
