    generally speaking females are worth more than males, so you might find someone that would want two for one. Its usually best to get different genetics when you get males unless they are after them for feathers or for matching up with their females for sale as pairs..........

    You need a Horizon filtered box which generally costs about $10. Express mail shipping and the live surcharge the USPS charges generally ranges from $45-55. You could recycle the box between you but you both would incur the shipping charges. For that price you could pick up 2 locally for less than that. Most yellow goldens go for about 35-40 for a young pair at our swaps up here.
