Hi all, My family has built a coop and are now successfully keeping 4 backyard chickens. We have two Plymouth Barred Rocks, and two Rhode Island Reds happily free-ranging on 1/3 acre in Raytown, Missouri (suburb of Kansas City) Question: My son would like to get an Araucana or Americana (Easter Eggers). I found someone selling locally, but I thought her prices were too high, and I'd love some feedback or advice on whether or not the price was right, or excessive. I didn't purchase because I thought her prices were excessive for the age of the chicken. She had three Araucanas, all of whom are two years old. She was asking $45 for the trio. I wanted one or two (yes I know I should get chickens in pairs), but she wants $20 for a SINGLE hen. Now, I'm new to all this, but $20 for one, two-year old hen seems crazy high. I was thinking $10-12 at most. The question is: is it worth it? Is that the normal price for ANY two year old hen, $20? I realize some breeds are rarer than others, but Araucana and Americana are pretty common from what I read. Thank you for any help or replies, they are much appreciated! -Seth Riddle Here are some pics of my Coop and Hens!
