As I'm sure it's very obvious, I'm very new at this... I just picked up my hens today! Being a newbie, I was hoping you all could take a look at the girls and tell me if they are "ok" - they look a little jangly to me... I'm not sure if this is normal chicken ware, or if they need attention. They are Dutch Bantams. I was told they are a year, but this woman had a TON of birds, I think it might be easy to mix of birth dates. When I picked them up, they were being housed in a small wire-bottom cage with a bunch of other DB hens. I'm kind of wondering if they were crowded? I think for starters, I'm maybe just not used to bantams in general. I've only ever been around full sized chickens. That could be part of my hang up on why they look a little ragged? So here's my concerns - they are all missing feathers on their necks. My husband is concerned that they are mangy - haha. The woman I got them from told me they were molting... Is that normal this time of year? Is this what it looks like? Also, the littlest one is really small - she is literally no larger than a pigeon. Her tail feathers look like they have been broken off and her comb is really small compared to the other two. - Will her tail feathers grow back in? Do you really think she is full grown? I've included a bunch of photos so that you can see the feather loss and the size difference - any thoughts/advice you have is much appreciated!
