I went and picked up 5 little hens this afternoon and they are a sorry looking bunch! They have their beaks clipped and were with a rooster that was way to rough on them. Their backs are just starting to look bad but I know my Buff Orp roo will be gentle with them when they are added to the flock. I guess they were giving them away because they had no heat for them. I think it was more a case of everyone lost interest. When I got them home and settled they drank for like 10 mins and were at the food for like 20. Annoying they were so hungry because the guy gave me a whole bag of good pellets and a bag of cracked corn They are safe now anyways and will be well cared for here until the day they die! With out further delay here they are! I beleive they are red stars yes??
