    There's a man near me that has Bantam Lavender Ameraucanas. I called asking if he had any pullets. He didn't but said he had a couple of "about 2 year old hens" he could let me have for $15/each. He did say they looked pretty rough right now because they were molting.

    Currently I have 5 other Bantam hens that are 9 months-1 year old they would be joining. What do you all think? Get these or wait until he has some pullets?

    IMHO, I would wait for new chicks. Again, totally my opinion.

    I'll probably pass. I'm not in that much hurry. I'd like them to not be THAT 'mature' I think. But I don't want to go the straight-run chicks either. Too hard to get rid of the roo's for me.
