I really need some help please. We are just in the process of building our coop. Should be done this weekend. I went to the Meyer Hatchery site to order some pullets, but just can't afford $75 for the shipping. So I got on craigs list to get some local and I am having some success. But I am totally stumped by this response I received .. Please help me decipher it. I am wanting to get 3 or 4 chickens to keep thru the winter for eggs and then going to get chicks in the spring. But I don't know if these are good or not? ugggg Here it is: I have 1 barred rock close to laying age, 1 mottled Houdan close to laying age, and two Crevecoers the same age, all unvaccinated. The rest of my birds are vaccinated for Marek's disease: 1 or 2 Salmon Faverolles approaching point of lay, 3-4 younger mottled houdans that should mature in January. These are all fine birds with conformation faults that make them unsuitable for breeding - I expect their eggs will taste fine. All had a coccidiostat when they were young, have never had signs of coccidiosis or so much as a sniffle.
