    Under 10.00 for sure... I've been selling SQ and PQ birds for $5.00 just because I have so many and need to make room... I could probably get 3-4 times more out of most of mine if I had the room and could wait for the right buyers.

    hen = grown up

    rooster = grown up

    I doubt white leghorns are more expensive than the silkies :S white leghorns cost about $10+ silkies can't be $3 [​IMG]

    Around here you get "pet" quality silkies any where from 1.00 to 6.00 and that is for pullet staring to lay and older..
