Ya I do not show birds or anything. I am strictly an egg producing farm. But I have two breeder pens where i have my Buffs and RIR so that I can always rotate my stock with young hens and I was just looking for different breeds to add to my collection. I thought they looked a little thin and sad but I thought maybe I could get them healthy. Maybe I will pass.
I am looking for Welsummers. My only girl I had died last night.
Those birds are not in good condition. Take a pass. Birds that unthrifty aren't going to be great layers, don't go there. Hold out for better stock - have you checked on the Welsummer list for people with excess in your state? It's a yahoo group. Check there.
