Hens and chicks are usually relatively inexpensive, fortunately and I like the look of them as well. Don't forget to add pics to your thread when you do get them!
These are the plants I'm looking at purchasing at aridlands.com over the next few months as I have not been able to find them locally:
Turbinocarpus pseudopectinatus ssp. pseudopectinatus
I'm not sure if you have a Home Depot in your area, but that is where I got my Pleiospilos nelii for $2.59 plus tax. Currently, all my succulents I have were from HD for $2.59, the small pots (which is also a reason why I don't want to pay $6+ lol, I know I'm cheap). There were some bigger plants for maybe a dollar or so more.
I wonder what type of Hens and Chicks I should get, the books on Succulents I borrowed say many Sempervivums can be considered Hens and Chicks, and another book said even other family of succulents can be Hens and Chicks. But all the books agree that Hens and Chicks usually refer to a Sempervivum spp.
