    Jacksonville area?
    I'm about 6 hours west of you.
    How many are you looking for? I just put a dozen in the fridge last night! My buyer didn't want them.

    I sell locally for $6/egg, $30 for half dozen, $60 for a dozen. Mine are good backyard birds but at this point my line isn't show-quality yet. Rooster has some dark red in his wattles.

    Yeah, you're really not gonna find cheap ayams that are any good. They're a rare bird. If you want good ones, you have to either buy good ones for good money, or buy cheap ones and breed them into good ones.
    If you want perfect ones, you need to specify that you want perfect ones, and they are not going to be cheap. The best you can do is "less expensive".

    I agree with everyone, just pet quality Ayam cemanis can be expensive.

    Now really good quality ones are are very pricey. These are an extremely rare bird and are hard to breed perfect.
     
  8. Did you ever snag those Wyandottes from back east?

    Since you're wanting to start a breeding/egg selling farm per your previous thread you may want to check websites online that can ship quality chicks to you. If you're serious about breeding you'll need to start with quality breeding stock and those birds won't come cheap.
