I bought 2 gold sex links(guy said about 14 months, but i suspect around 8-9)at a swap and I didn't notice the smell till I got to the car. It's been 3 days and they still have a smell to them that isn't pleasant. Is this common, I don't see any cuts or any thing physically wrong, they have lost a few small feathers but I suspect this is due to them maturing. Am I freaking out about nothin or is there a disease that could cause this? The mans other animals/chickens seemed all in good health as did these, he just a lot of these(gold sex links). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
