    i found a man selling frizzles, they were in sad looking shape. the roos looked good, but thee poor hens are hideous . [​IMG] they are nearly bald. they have been debeaked....i hate that....but i couldnt jst leave them so, i got 12 frizz hens and 4 cochin roos for $15. can anyone tell me if theres anything more i can do for them besides feeding and a little tlc. when i got them home and got them set up they ate like they hadn't eaten in a week. so if any of you know of anything that can help me get them in good shape. and help get thier feathers back, please let me know....thank you [​IMG]

    I'd start by worming and dusting them...then I'd give them some good vitamins, apple cider vinegar in the water and maybe some good yogurt.

    At best they haven't been taken care of. At worst, they may be sick.

    KEEP THEM QUARINTINED if you have other birds.
