    I have a friend who just found two trios of very tiny Dominiques. He asked me about them and I know nothing at all about them, so thought I'd pick all the BYC'ers brains.

    These are supposedly quality birds. I haven't seen them, but he is supposed to email me some pictures, when he does I'll post them here. But for now, assuming they are quality.....

    What would be a fair price for a trio?

    Oh Wow there are a lot of answers to that.

    First of all pictures are in order.

    Then I suppose one could say whatever someone will pay for them.

    Around the area that I live in, you cant get any more than $5-$10 a bird.

    But, people that show and are well known in the show circuit can get a lot more. IE:person in my area gets $75 a bird. But this person is known through the US.

    As for the dominique, I dont see it as a chicken that is in super high demand, so probably would only fetch a normal chicken price.

    Unless a person sold it on an online auction and had excellent pictures of the specimen.

    etc,,.... I guess I am not much help. As far as fare price? That would probably be a personal opinion. I myself would probably pay up to $100 for a trio or pair, all depending on how bad I wanted them and how good I thought they were.
