So I went out today to the local stock auction. They had alot of birds, but most were roosters and some had no feathers and muddy butt. I was about to leave when I saw a guy at the back of the yard with a truck filled with birds packed in like sardines. I walked over to see what he was doing and found that he had about 50 birds. The state of them was pathetic. Most had broken beaks. They could not stand either, the crates they were in were only about 10 inches high. Though they seemed to over all be OK at first glance, i saw that many of them had pale waddles and as I said before, broken beaks. I decided to buy 2. I could only afford 10 bucks, and he said I could have two. i think it was over priced, but I took them anyhow because I could not bear to see them living like they were. I took the 2 that looked the worst. I wish i could ahve bought the whole lot and saved them. He said he had a huge farm and these were the extra birds. How can i help these birds recover? What sorts of treatments are there to get them healthy again? Should i file the lower beak down? I really need help. If they die, at least they will go in peace and happiness rather than in crowded disgusting conditions. Right now they are perky, strutting around and drinking. One was even eating. I think I have a rooster and a hen. The lady said they were comets. I dont know what those are.
