    I wish you luck - although you may find that even $50 is too low. Especially for rumpless and tufted. In the past few months I have watched them sell on eggbid for $75 to $125 per hen + shipping. For $50 I have usually seen un-tufted or pet quality. [​IMG] I want some too, I just can't justify that kind of price. Hatching eggs will probably be the way to go for me, might be a good option for you as well. Good Luck in your hunt!

    I have 2 rumpless hens with tufts.
    I would not sell either of them for $50. I would not take even $150. They are too hard to replicate but we keep on trying. I have 3 roos and only 2 of them have nice tufts.
    Maybe I will have enough nice ones to sell one day but so far my 3 flocks are not producing enough to go for sale. Rumpless I can get all day long but those darn tufts are the ones I bet are not hatching.
