In the Brooder
- Mar 14, 2012
Hello! I just saved two "runt" chicks from a place that raises chickens for meat. They usually just kill the runts and compost them. We were looking to add a couple of chickens to our flock, and when I saw these, dirty, sad birds (a lot of them were pecked) it was clear they were kept in very close quarters. I decided I wanted to give two of them a chance as laying hens. Any idea what kind of breed they are? Supposedly both female.
