I'm an idiot! A soft hearted, spineless idiot! Well, the roosters had to go. But the hens in trade aren't moulting, they are rooster shredded and full of mites. And have some have spurs? I'm tempted to have someone dig a deep hole and end their misery. What a stench! I've bathed them, put them in isolation in a dog kennel, scoured my foot wear and dumped clothes in the laundry. What is the point when 'rescue' birds aren't worth it? I've given strict instructions that no one is to go near that area until I decide what to do. Red bare skin, scabs, wild disposition. Not underweight though. I just want to kick myself to the moon. I was supposed to be getting rid of problems, NOT getting worse ones!
