i will be going to gilmanor, but hadn't planned on selling anything, just shopping.
but if someone's interested, you could paypal me and i could bring them and meet you there. (i'm selling them as a group, not by pair/trio)
and yes, he moulted that feather as well and has a whole tail coming in nicely now. as for why it's so white, i honestly don't know, but would probably say nutrition problems from the previous owner... i've had him now just about 6 weeks. got him and 3 pullets to go between the crele and my blue-gold crele roo, the pullets were near starvation IMO, they were so thin... but they're all nice and rounded now. as much as i love the crele, I've just decided that I don't need to be adding another breed to my (too few) breeding pens. they're taking over 1 right now (all 5 get along great) but that's not a problem short term, as everyone else is free ranging until i decide who gets the breeding pens this go-round. (and hubby helps me band the older pullets i'm keeping).
