    I am needing to buy a Bourbon Turkey Tom.

    I have a line on one from a trusted source, but we have not talked price yet (aka we have not talked turkey), so what say you?

    Should $50 be the top of the range or it the starting point.


    I traded chickens for the two hens I have, I valued them at about 20 USD each.

    So the price you posted for the Tom is not out of range for my income and willingness.

    I've seen them sold for $40, sometimes more sometimes less. It depends on the person you are buying from and why you are buying it. Price also depends on your location. Around here they may sell for less (or more) than what they sell in your area.

    I've seen $50 as a typical price for average stock. I think you might get one for less, if you got a good deal. If it was from exhibition stock, who knows how much they'd want.
