Well I did it, I went and bought some Tolbunts. Probably not the best for type and color but they were nearby and a good price. Actually have 4 and took pictures of them all but then my computer had to "repair" my card and delete some of them. >.<
Yeah I don't think she was really going for proper color/type. She only has about 7 tolbunts breeding age & 4 chicks she kept. She did say she liked them with less white, her hens had a lot more white but her male is darker than the hens. Can't complain, I like them and I can work on color/type with time and some quality birds to breed with.
Your probably right, I didn't think about that until you mentioned it but I'm still learning what to look for. I know she's got some medical issues. These will most certainly get quarantined and supplemented, treated like pets here.
Thanks, believe me I understand. Some of the parrots I have rescued and I saw the places they were in and some just make me shudder at the thought, and these were really expensive parrots, I could only imagine what some chicken hoarders enclosures are like.
And just curious. If a young Polish is a cockerel by what age would you say it will have red wattles? Ive got a Red(probably not the right color name but thats what it looks like) Polish, its about 12 weeks. No red wattles at all and very round crest. Good chance its a pullet? There's also that Gold Laced in the pictures above(in the green carrier) with a spikey crest which I'm told is usually indicative of a male but it doesn't have reddish wattles either and a lady said it looked pullet to her because of that, same age about 11-12wks.
