    I would tell them absolutely not! Then I would tell them to research how to introduce new chickens to the flock. It might sound cold-hearted, but you have to protect your flock at any cost. Just my 2c...

    This really sucks!! I mean, I don't want them getting beaten up. They are defenseless little silkie girls. But I don't want to risk my flock. You think I could quarantine them with the news ones I got?? Or is that a bad idea?

    I think Ruby is on track to becoming a breeder and selling a lot. No returns. Nip that in the bud right now. It's hard enough to sell them the first time. It's sad for the chickens, but the sad truth is that some people regret their purchase soon after. Thats not the sellers fault, or responsibility. The only returns I will do is if I sell a pullet that starts crowing, then those unfortunate fellows end up in the freezer

    I agree with not taking them back - unless you really want them for your program and have a safe place to quarantine them.

    Not unless you want to risk the new ones.

    Ruby, you're a sweetheart with a lot of compassion, but don't start doing that. Right now it's only 2. By the summer you will have many more of your birds our there, and you won't have room for returns. It's not your responsibility
