    i've sold an oeg rooster for $50.00 and thats the highest i've went
    that is a normal price for game roosters in certain areas because people either fight them or the fact that they are getting uncommon in other areas

    This is normal pricing for high quality gamefowl. I have seen prices much higher for show winning stock. And it is not just gamefowl, other breeds bring this type of money. If you think this is high just look at the price of parrots.

    Quote:OEG standards one day old from cackle sell for $8.00 apiece. No known bloodlines just standard bird. I see nothing wrong with people getting the price that they want for a bird. If it is too much then it is too much. I paid $10 a egg for hatching eggs of one breed without showing. I want to get back to breeding parrots again, but it is a much longer process than chickens. Parrots usually will not breed without a emotional bond to their mate.

    We used to sell them here for more than that, especially once you get the clientelle. Those are not average run of the mill birds.
