I went to the feed store to buy some hay and feed this morning. Someone about a week ago, had brought in about 50 or so beautiful looking Red and Black Sex Link hens as well as a few Black Australorp hens, all about 10 months to a year old to be sold. They all appeared to be very healthy, in a clean environment with plenty of food and water. Some were even laying eggs in 5 gallon buckets with hay in them all lined up in a row on an elevated rack. I was thoroughly impressed and seriously considered buying some of the Black Sex Links. I decided not to because I knew better due to possible unseen health problems, even after quarantining. It was a tough decision but I knew all the hens will soon be all sold. I eagerly await for my chicks to hatch from a BYC friend!
