I contacted a local hatchery here in MO last week regarding the purchase of fifteen Buff Orpington pullets. While they were unable to help me they did recomend another local person who has the birds and wants $6.50 each for them. Here's my quandary, I was chatting with a local farmer yesterday and he thought that $6.50 was very expensive, what do you more knowlegable folks think ? Money is tight all around right now and i'd not like to spend more than necessary. Thanks all, Chris.
