I've raised some combination of chickens and ducks since I was a kid (mainly ducks) but recently I've just had a backyard flock of chickens for eggs. I wanted to add a few brown egg producers to my flock and found a local ad for golden wyandottes so I thought I might pick a few up. When I got there the coops looked nice and well kept and the chickens all looked healthy. I had let her know a few days in advance that I wanted 2 pullets but she proceeds to hand me a cockerel and a pullet. Now I've been duped by young late blooming roosters before, but this one wasn't even close to looking like a hen. She argued with me a bit (which blew my mind) but ultimately told me that she "couldn't find" the other wyandottes so she asked if I could just take one of the huge white hens that was running around and assured me they were good layers. By this point it was hot and I just wanted to be done (and I had already paid her) so I took the hen she offered me and left. I acclimate all of my new hens by keeping them in a large dog grate in the coop for a few days, which I have done for quite some time now with no issue. The two new girls were fine over night, but in the 5-6 hrs I was gone at work today the white hen has eaten the back of the pullet's head...I have never seen anything like it. The skin on the back of her head, starting where her comb ends, is splayed open all of the way down to her back and her skull and spine are fully exposed. Somehow she's still walking around and eating as I wait on my boyfriend to get home to put her out of her misery. My concern is what to do with the white hen. In all of my years of keeping chickens I have never seen this happen and I'm not sure if I want to add her to my flock. I can take a chance and keep her or drop her off at the livestock auction later this week if I decide not to keep her. This is the last time I buy chickens from random ads.
