I found some pullets for sale on craigslist locally. They were supposed to be pure bred barred rocks for sale but when I got there it was obvious no birds at all were pure bred, much less pure bred rocks. The chickens were all terrified of people and they couldn't even catch one for me to take a look at. At least half of them had some problems like cross beak or bent toes. Some had even worse defects. It was sad really I thought about buying a few of the pitiful ones to rescue but I ended up leaving with nothing. After I thought about it, I figured buying them would only encourage these people to breed more birds. Needless to say, I took a head to toe shower and washed my clothes and shoes when I got home. Has anyone else experienced something like this?
