    Oh, good, I can't wait to see them. I bet they are gorgeous. Sorry, I have no idea what they cost. I hope you got a good deal.

    [email protected] , or call me at 903-771-9580 Ask for gladys.

    Hey, I just found this on Craigslist. This woman is selling them for $100 a pair. Thought this would help.

    They sell at First Monday (Canton) for $125.00 to $150.00 a head.

    You didn't say how much you paid. I have been looking for a female or two, but DH WILL NOT pay that price for them, so I will just have to wait until I run across a couple of pea hens.

    Where did you get them? Was it local?
    Just curious, cause I am close to you.

    I'm in Canada, but the local breeder charges $50 each, for cock or hen. This year's or last year's hatch. But I've also seen them elsewhere for $350 a breeding pair. I guess it pays to shop around

    Thanks, but I ended up with 2 males. I sold one for $50.00 and kept one.
    I'm looking for hens about a year old to go with my male.

    Saw the pictures, they are pretty.

    at the montgomery trade day (here in the houston area), full growns were going for $150 a head. the cheapest i found were unsexed 2 month olds for $35 a head. breeding pairs that were about 4 months old were going for $85 to $100 a pair.
