    If you want some hatchery red sex linked girls, I have about 10-12 that are 6.5 weeks old. I have them listed on CL for a nice high price since they are starting to really eat food, and since CL people tend to want to talk down the price. I'll make you a great deal, if you are interested just send me a message. I also have 3 or 4 Partridge rocks that are the same 6.5 weeks old.
    I also have 4 production RIR hens that are just under a year old, if you are looking for adult chickens.

    I may also be interested. I am hoping to get my bigger coop done this weekend and since the ladies aren't laying anyway it might be a good time to add a couple more hens (the adults would interest me more than the younguns). Can you PM me a price and a phone number? Thanks!

    OMG, chicken sale! I will have to go! Thanks!
    Thank you! But (on hatching the eggs) I would not be able to part with the roos, or eat them. I just get too attached, and then I wind up with a flock that is half roos.
    I am definitely interested in more EE, I have two and they are gorgeous!
    I know this has been asked before, but quails and chickens can or cannot be mixed? I am thinking that quails can but turkey's can't...? Is that right?

    I want to thank everybody for their support! Being a newb has it's downfalls sometimes...like being able to tell whether or not ur girls are molting or not. I'm glad i'm not the only one who has seen decreased egg production.
    **update-- i did an overhaul on my coop today and noticed quite a few feathers everywhere which gives me hope that they have gone in to early molting. Picked up all 3 of my girls to make sure they had no "lumps" as someone suggested i do to check for egg binding. I am happy to report that I found no lumps!!!! lol i also checked them to make sure they didn't have any parasites crawling on them and their feet are nice and yellow and healthy!! I love these girls and just want to really good care of them! so thanks for your advice friends!!

    Thanks. Good luck with the hatch! What kind of eggs are they?

    Haha. Alright, if I get any extra hens ill let you know. I have not see that cross before. Sounds interesting!


    I recently saw a pos on here for heritage barred rocks and too fell in love with them. They look so different to the hatchery birds. I'm tempted by this auction but the last thing I need is to get a new breed!

    You really can't free range quail, but I don't see what the issue housing them together. I honestly don't know. Turkeys and chickens can be housed together as long as you don't have blackhead disease on your property. At least that was my understanding.
