    this is part of the add
    I have a healthy pair of Blue Island Hens, They are about twelve weeks old and have been pets. These are nice chickens and would make good layers. These chicken imitate a peacock by fluffing and frilling. Their colors are very unique also .
    he said he has refused to sell them to two people because he thought they were going to eat them.

    he decided to keep them so I never got to see them. I really think they were Iowa Blue Hens
