I am starting to build my first flock and heard swaps were a decent place to go for a variety of birds. I stumbled across two breeds that I liked. One is the brabanter and the other is the cuckoo maran. That being said, I wasn't sure how much to pay. They were all 3.5 to 4 months old and all hatchery sexed females. I payed 30 for both marans and 20 for the Brabanter. I went back this week and bought 2 black sex linked for 30, both were female. I have both of my brother-in-law and father-in-law laughing when I told them how much I spent. Are they right or did I do OK? Thanks.
