    Quote:I would buy them for that price. How old? If at least 4 months than that is a good deal.

    Well..if they are laying, which they should be by that age....I guess that's an ok price?
    After all the owner has had to FEED then to this age.

    We have 4 Barred Rocks, and 3 of them started laying at about (?) 22 weeks or so...we had one freeloader that waited a LONG time, but she is now onboard...([​IMG] ). We have had hot/cold/stormy/just plain BAD weather, and we still get 2-3 or 4 eggs a day from our 4 hens! They are amazingly adaptable![​IMG]

    Good price if it is a hatchery stock. If she was from exhibition stock, that would be a steal!

    yes i hope they are laying by now at 7months old. i usually dont pay more than 7or 8 dollars a piece for birds. i only want a couple to add to my flock of 19 hens and a rooster. so i guess 20.00 bucks isnt to bad .

    ALWAYS ask for a discount. I bought my pullets for $3.50 each. They were orginally $5 but I talk him out of it.

    Try to go lower!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry I'm just cheap.
