    One dollar for chicks, $2.50 for 2-4 week olds and $3 until they lay. When they start laying they are $3 a rooster and $4 a hen.

    Out here, $2.20 per chick IF you can find them. When you do order quick because they will be gone in no time.

    Here in WA the norm seems to be $2 a chick. There is even a big time breeder that sells them for $4 a chick and a lot more for the adults.
