Some breeds are tougher than others but if ur saying your a new comer and can tell than I sure would think someone experienced enough to be breeding would know... Everyone makes mistakes but she probably should have told you they were from TSC or other feed store. Just how old are they anyway? Regardless they are cute and ull love them just the same... I just have been seeing a lot of people on other site too etc that are claiming to be breeders of BLRW yet they are breeding birds that do not come even close to the breed standard.. Certainly don't want u to think I was writing targeting your situation only..
