    From a local Craigslist ad. And I thought $9 for my Barnevelder chicks was a lot. These are 10 times that.


    "Pure Lemon Cuckoo Orpington chicks available in June.
    $89.00 per chick - taking orders"

    ok,you gotta ask for some pics so we can see them.
    if they are true then it is about right but we all know how some ads on craigslist go.i mean wouldn't it make more sense to put them on here for such a rare variety.unless they are trying to fool someone,surely not.
    i want pics

    Pfff, for that much they should lay the lemons AND make the lemonade! [​IMG]

    Wait... why didn't he just ask $90 per chick and make it even?
