How Much Does a Rooster Cost?

Roosters can be raised for a variety of reasons.  The main purpose of raising roosters is to fertilize hens, but people also enjoy raising them for show and for fighting.  Roosters are typically not as expensive as hens, but the pure-bred types can be more expensive depending on the breed and the source you purchase one from.
