I went to an organic smaller scale chicken farm to get my chickens. I went to get adult chickens but ended up getting 1 week old chicks. 2 golden laced brahmas and 2 lavendar americuanas. The womans ad said the chickens were $20 but i guess that was only for her orphingtons. She charged me $40 per chick. I was shocked at the price but i had driven far and had already spent alot of time looking at all of her chickens and picked out the babies. I still cant believe i spent $160 on 4 baby chicks. I expressed my concern about the cost to her and she said they will be amazing, gorgeous wonderful chickens and all of theif chicks and chickens have been handled with love and care. Its like getting designer or purebred dogs except these are chickens. So i felt weird saying never mind and parted with the money. I would have been fine paying 40 each if they were already ready to start laying eggs soon but im still feeling weird about the whole situation. Would you pay that much for a week old chick?
