I'm talking about "regular" chickens, not show birds. From hatcheries such as Ideal, Meyers, McMurray, Cackle, Privett, etc. I have never spent more than about $85, but this year my list is going to be over $100, because I am ordering more layers than usual, and also a couple of different bantam breeds. I am planning to order the following from Ideal: 25 Pullets from the Plymouth Rock Asst. 4 Cockerels from the Rock Asst. (pick the best 2 roosters for the flock, eat the others) 4 Easter Egger pullets (already have a lonely roo) 4 Bantam Cochin Asst. 8 OEGB Asst. + Shipping and handling, will be about $115. Just wondering what was normal for each person to spend ordering chicks!
