Around $500 for a young pair, I bought my first pair for $450 about 2 years ago. I purchased eggs earlier this year for about $60 per egg and now have 3 unrelated chicks to add to my chicks from the pair I have now.

I have had a pair for 4 years now and never raised a chick. Layed 2 eggs on the roost last year and has NOT laid an egg this year. On a brighter note I have 2 Temminick chicks that mom hatched on her own. I usually have way too many amherst and golden chicks by now but this year I have 2. Eggs are not hatching?

Impeyans are notorious for eating their eggs.I'm sure this is why you have had no eggs this year.My olderr pair has eaten a few of theirs before I could get them.

I would get them,as long as you have read up on them. They dig a lot and need a well drained aviary, and many otherneeds but I was just naming a few.

Good luck though,
Justin
