    I don't think you'll have a chance to find out. lol I've already been given a four digit sum of $ in advance by another breeder for the first extra shojo colored bird I have available.

    P.S. I'm not sure they'd be too tasty. The lack of fat wouldn't make them too tender or juicy I don't think.

    That's nothing compared to what pures sell for. Mine are only 60-70% pure depending on the individual. No pures are known to exist in the US. In Europe, a good quality pair of pure fowl will fetch up to €30,000, or approx. $39,000. It's been said that you'd have to remortgage your house to get pures. Only recently did I learn of an exact figure. I won't be buying any anytime soon even if import was possible or feasible.

    I did hear of one guy selling some with 15 Ft tails, proven 5 year non-molters for only $1,500 (USD), but he was in Germany and I don't know why it was so cheap.

    Lovely, lovely birds. I am envious!


    I used to have bantam Cochins & silkies, then later standard silver-laced Wyandottes, until I moved. I miss my birds!!!

    Years ago I had gotten this silkie hen from a friend. She was top exhibition quality. She had the vaulted skull, a very round body, and was full feathered from crest to toe, but she wouldn't lay for anything.



    Shortly after I got a good quality male from another breeder, but they never had any offspring. She laid only one egg the whole three or four years I had her, but that's how a lot of show birds are. It's heck getting some of them to lay after their first batch of pullet eggs.
