    You cannot tell health by a photo.
    That said, either that farmer is a poor photographer or those chicks are in pitiful shape. [​IMG]

    If you have the strength to walk away after a visit if it shows unhealthy signs, you could visit.

    Otherwise I'd say no. It does look as though it's dark or night time.

    They look cold and sickly, but can't tell for sure. BTW those are not Barred Rocks.

    NO! Run! They look ill to me. Seriously, you can't really tell how healthy they are from a photo, but dang, they don't look good to me at all.
