    don't know, but since it is now illegal in ALL 50 states *Hallelujah! it's about time!* seems to me like somebody's "smokin' rope" as the old saying goes... [​IMG]

    [​IMG] $100?!? Thats crazy! Come over here to Waco and you can normally get them free or at least little to nothing. I see ads all the time for free roosters.

    maybe a rare bloodline. who knows?, i dont see anywhere, where it says what bloodlines they are. Maybe their show chickens?. i know OEGBs that are good show qaulity can be sold for 50+ a pair. some people want 100 each chicken. maybe these people are just trying to get as much as they can from them. you never know really. and i guess it doesn't matter. its either. "should i buy them/will i buy them?. or.. Their crazy *closes the ad*"

    Really though... I'd hope they were at least pretty roosters, but they're not.

    I think it's Rain Man, who when asked how much a candy bar costs said "About a hundred dollars." This person doesn't know anything about anything where roosters are concerned. Can't tell what breed they are; described a "red crest"; and "long legs". Maybe he just loves his roosters and thinks they are worth $100. Around here there are signs in the feed stores advertising roosters for $8 but the $8 is drawn through and marked-down to $5.
