I went to get three pullets today to add to my flock... the guy had chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pot bellied pigs all in his back yard... it was not the cleanest place, but I took pity on the poor girls (NEVER do that again)!!!! Tonight I got them home... first I noticed diarrhea... then one of them laid a soft shell egg... then I noticed one had a runny nose... and last, LICE!!!! I could not see any of these issues during the day. Thank goodness I quarantined... these birds are going back in the am, and I hope he has the good sense to refund my money, since he lives in a gated community and I am pretty sure there are rules about these things... Still have to spend all day tomorrow disinfecting all the items that were anywhere near these poor diseased things! Lesson learned, that is for sure. I knew you had to be careful, but WOW!
