How much does a chicken cost?

It depends on who is selling them and what they are selling them for. Also, many factors determine the price of a live chicken. A day old meat chick can sell for as little as 20 cents U.S. each to as much as $5.00 each. Certain breeds sell for higher prices and hens usually sell for more than roosters. If a breeder has raised the chick for longer than a few days then the price goes up to cover the cost of raising the bird.
If you mean a chicken and I hope you do - here's my answer. The price depends. if you buy them at chicks, they can cost anywhere from $1.50 to $6. If you buy them once they're all grown up, they will be more expensive, anywhere from $10 to $25.
