I just got a new 11 month old laying hen for $3 from Dunlap Hatchery. She has a badly picked tail which is almost non existent. I believe I got her from their medical wing as most of her friends were either badly picked or injured. The good news is she has now been introduced to sun light and her comb is now bright red instead of pink. She is very weary of humans. I have yet to get a picture of her. She also laid a medium sized white egg as soon as she got home. She has yet to lay another in the 3 weeks I have had her. I just wonder if there is a good way to tell them apart as her colors aren't exactly show quality from the looks of it. She frankly has kind of a washed pattern. I will try to post a pic later if I get time. Thanks for you help.
