    Friends of ours posted this pic, and these birds have been wondering the neighborhood for a few days. No one says they are theirs. I will try to catch and bring into my flock. (Barred Rocks)
    I only have hens. What are these? I dont want a roo.[​IMG]

    Be sure to quarantine them first and check for disease. You don't know what diseases they may be secretly carrying! Especially if they have been wandering around like that.

    Red sex links, look to be in good shape. Somebody has been taking care of them. Must have been dumped. As another has stated, be sure and quarantine them away from your others for at least 30 days.

    They moved on by the time I was just about there. I can prepared and was goi g to separate but I guess it wasn't meant to be. I do know they have been wandering the neighborhood for a few days.

    Setup a temporary pen and scatter some scratch in it. They may come back.
