I just got my ready to lay pullets from my neighbor down the road. 5 of them. They had had their beaks clipped! I know it's a common thing for commercial places but it still ticks me. How long will it take for their beaks to grow? They will grow out right? Poor girls.... At least I will have eggs soon! And no worry about putting them with my 6 week olds, my top pullet baby Betty a cuckoo maran is holding her own and putting everyone in their place. It's sort of comical really. The new girls are pretty laid back.
