    Nice not having to quarantine them. I can`t wait to put mine all together. I am working the chicken tractor out toward the coop. 3 weeks left. I paid $10 each for mine.

    Quote:I respectfully disagree. All birds should be put in quarentine. What is to say that his birds have not been exposed to something since the last time you got birds from this person.

    They are pretty though. [​IMG] Although I though RIR had yellow legs.
