    Well, judging from pics I'm seeing on here; I believe I was not only sold 2 sick chicks (out of 6 total) but lied to about their age. My so-called six week old BA's are about half fuzz/half feathers and the 6 weekers I'm seeing on here are all feathered out. Next thing I guess I'll find out the pullets I paid extra for are all roos. Guess maybe I should have paid the shipping charges for the hatchery chicks. I guess thats what happens to newbies sometimes.
