    Just browsing thru eggbid.com (and byc) as hubby finishes up with the superbowl ....

    I came across a pair of show silkies for $785 ....

    What!
    Could it be true?
    Do show birds really sell at this price ???

    Just curious?

    Here's the LINK:

    What a crock, why is it we are starting to see more and more of these IDIOTS posting such outragous prices for just regular/mundane birds.

    Those birds were started at a reasonable price, it's the bidders that drive it up. Those birds are very nice, and I wouldn't be surprised if the price went higher.

    You must have miss my post about the 1 (yes, that's right...1) silkie that sold for $1,200. That evil silkie REALLY stole someone's soul!

    I just went back and looked at the bidding history. The top two bidders have 0 feedback. That's not a very good sign!

    Quote:The winning bidder did pay. He also bought 2 pairs of whites on there totalling around $1400 and he paid for them as well.
