Well we went to the sale to look last night... and low and behold came back with chickens! Mind you our coop isnt done yet but we felt awful for them!! Smashed in a cage half their size and downright miserable looking. There was a family their that was buying almost everything that went through (to eat). Their beauty was too much for us to let them be culled so we brought them home. Im pretty sure theyre buff orps and we have 3 hens and 2 roos... Anyone up for aging them too? Thanks for all your help!!!!!

I am seeing 1 roo and at least 3 hens-I could not totally tell about a 2nd roo. My guess is 14-16 weeks old. I have BO's and your look to be just 1-2 weeks older than some of mine-your wattles are adrker in color than mine at this point? If you dont mind me asking how much did you pay for them? I cant see spending alot of money just to cull them , like you said??

at that age and for BO's near the point of lay-Id say you got a deal! I paid 10$ for some hens and resold them for 15$ a pop the next weekend-but I drove 7 hours to get them so I wasnt trying to make $ just recoup-live in a small town and people here would have paid 15-20 for a hen at point of lay...I have:)
