The man I got my first flock from asked if I'd take his remaining 16 RIR's. He said they looked better than when I picked up my first ten. (I was so happy, I shared two so ended up w/only 8) They don't look good at all, not even their eyes or surrounding their eyes. They are just plain mean and mean to damage when they peck each other. Out of 16 there may be only two that are unscathed and look normal in feather but their eye lids don't even look normal on any. I'm due to butcher the second flock of CornishX tomorrow and am wondering if culling is the only way to ensure none of this nastiness comes into my young and very beautiful, happy, friendly flocks. I'm ready after watching last night! I'm ready and dressed to go do it right now...even if they provided 6 eggs on their first day here w/me, yesterday. My original 8 girls (hens) are NOT happy to see their sisters. The coop is in front of theirs and they intend to protect their space and happiness. (Keeping them separated.) The original owner never thought of them as pets, and kept telling me not to treat mine as pets either but mine are so much happier and healthier than his have been. What a bummer! If nothing else, they'd make good soup? Poor, sorry looking and horrid things... shall I post pics?
