    Does that price include shipping? It's really not that bad. I've paid more for less chickens. lol

    Mostly the shipping from Minnesota to Florida. I've been looking real hard for Black Javas, for about two months now hard to find any at all. These are supposed to be good show quality stock. [​IMG]
