We went to buy some game chicks for free range yesterday, and at the farm we went to the gentleman that was selling them had $250-300 roosters!!! A piece! I was shocked! I have never paid more than $3!!
Have any of you paid alot for pure bred show birds or anything for that matter?
My two dollar a piece chickens are the greatest!

I have paid $3 a chick in the past for "Feed store brand" chickens. My current flock was free ( one hen, one rooster...all bred from that)

I just paid $2 per egg for BCMs.

IDK about paying the money you are talking about.....that's more than a month's house payment for me!!

If that's what you do, and you have that kind of money, I say there is only one life to live...induldge a little.

I couldn't do it though.

I can't say I understand it. Thus far my most expensive chicken will be one that is still in the bator. Only 1 of 6 is developing and I spent $25 on the eggs.

I paid $50 for a Lavender Orpington cockerel and got a pullet thrown in as a gift.
