I am not sure why ...but I am feeling guilty. I have decided to buy a couple more birds to add to our small flock. Today, I went out to look at someone's red stars. When I got there, I noticed all of them had sore feet. Not really bumps, but the skin was peeling a little. They also had a sort of bad smell. Infection? Maybe it was because of being on 3 feet of poo, no shavings? They did seem to be the right weight, etc. I started to get some a couple of times while there, but was a little worried about bringing something back. I do have a place to quarantine, but still... I guess of part of me feel a little sorry for the guy. His health was not too good.
