    85 /3 = 28.33 per bird plus shipping and the $9 box. Seems a bit much for banties. IMO.

  5. Its all relative. If YOU like the birds, then go for it! I had a buyer pay $206 for one single silkie rooster a couple weeks ago. But she liked the bird!

    I'm not a big fan of the smaller birds, but even if they were full sized, I don't think I'd pay that much per bird. I have several varieties of Polish and wouldn't pay nor sell my girls for that much. Again, IMO.

    Quote:they look decent, and their lacing looks nice.
    The price depends on you. I would buy them because they are super rare, especially in poultry shows.

    Anyone notice that the females look like they are non-bearded while the male is bearded?

    Quote:yes, polish come in bearded and non-bearded.
    You also have to remember when you add shipping it's, what $40 or more?
    I agree, the price is relative. It's how much you want them and how easy you can find them. I spent tons on eggs of breeds and had crappy hatches so my chicks ended up costing upwards of $30 each at times, and mostly roos [​IMG] . It would have been cheaper for me to just buy a trio at the start [​IMG]
