    you wont be finding any one selling ceylons as hatchin eggs or chicks to rare not and probably not greys either sure not on ceylons but greys i usely see are going for 50 to 75 for young pairs and i atleast know ceylons will be in the 100s

    Hello I'm a breeder of three of the junglefowl species Red Jf, Grey Jf and Ceylons Jf. As far as Grey jf price, your are looking at about $100.00 to $120.00 a pair. Depends greatlly on the breeder. Ceylon breeders are very rare in the USA. Prices for Ceylons are about $500 to $600 a young pair breeders being alot more.
    If I may ask, have you ever worked with any of the Junglefowl species??

    agree with Junglefowl's post
    greys run $80- $150
    ceylons I have only seen at $600
    greens $600

    The reason for their "have you ever kept them question" Is
    Ceylons and greens are extremely sensitive birds to keep and will fall over dead on you if you dont know what you are doing. They are a lot different than reds and greys as far as care goes, so be sure to do some research and be prepared for them if you go threw with it.
    And no, you wont find eggs or chicks for them at all, yearling pairs will be the youngest, cheapest thing available on them.
    Good luck

    Quote:That's cool, all I have seen in GA are over $100 though, think Charles Hill's are $150 if I remember what he said correctly. I know his greens and ceylons are $600ish.

    $75 would be an excellent price if the quality was good!!!

    Quote:yep, Johns are about $75 if you are talking about Mason...

    Funny how much difference breeders have in them, I would love some more at $50 range, let me know if you run across any more like that locally
