    Hi everyone, I just got my 6 new rtls today from freys hatchery.I have a black star that appears to be injured. She has hardly moved since I put her in the coop 7 hours ago. She'll walk a bit if I help her along and that's about it. I'm wondering if just the shock from the 1 day trip could have done this to her. Its the first time I have bought rtls. I have too barred rocks that are very Mopey but not half as bad as the black star. It also appears to me they have never seen a roost or a nesting box. The 2 columbian rocks laid each an egg on the floor not long ago. Anyone else have experience with fresh rtls just off the truck?
