Hi...few questions here! I was looking to add some new silkies to my small silkie flock. A couple people recommended someone (who lives at a distance) and she sent me photos of ones she had for sale. We arranged to meet halfway. When we met (with her husband) he had a problem with the box they were being transported in (it broke) so I didn't get to see them as we were afraid they'd get out. So I'm only seeing them 'in person' now. It probably goes without saying that I'm not thrilled with how they look. I'm a newish chicken owner, so this could just be inexperience with how they should look. My silkies (hatched out in July) are lovely poofy things. These new hens are scrawny (they're 10 months old). Only the one rooster is poofy. Their feet feathers are kinda broken looking and their poofy heads are not so lovely and fluffy as mine. Could these just still be recovering from moulting? And the one new rooster is running around mating all the new hens (well, his old hens) roughly and stomping around. Is he just acting so in-silkie like because he's in a new place? I'm just kinda disappointed in them. I hope they'll turn into nice-looking birds (they have lovely colors!). Any advice? Other than, don't buy site-unseen ever again!
