    Too late?

    I have 26 week old roos that won't sell and they are eating so darn much so I was curious if 26 weeks is "too late" as in the meat will be very tough and inedible.

    Hen has trouble walking

    Not bumblefoot. Checked that ages ago and keep checking. Everything looks fairly normal. She is a very healthy bird despite her difficulties, and a happy one too. She doesn't look like a Mareks chicken to me, doesn't walk like one or act like one. But I am inexperienced in Mereks. Perhaps she...

    Review by '' on item 'Ameraucana'

    They are beautiful birds. I love breeding them and seeing them in my yard. I would recommend them! The roosters are not overly loud, and I havent found them aggressive. They are very fun to show. They are very flighty from a young age. I have raised them from chicks to adults and they are still...
