    I hope I dont get in trouble but I posted this on another area and so far no real answers. Long story short went to the auction and bought a "hen" for a friend that had to leave early. The lot contained what was thought to be 2 hens and 1 roo. Well I gave the one Roo to a neighbor and then was going to keep the different looking hen so my friend could have her hen. Well her hen is a roo and she lives in a city so no roos are going there. She doesnt like the hen (I really dont either but she is growing on me) Anyway I was thinking about taking them back to re auction after their mites are cleared up. Anyway what are they and would you keep or just reauction? I really dont need anyone else as I have 32 coming from Mcmurray next week.

    Here is the roo that is not hen

    hi Jess, I think it just depends on how many chickens you want and how many you have.
    She looks nice enough, and if you can use the eggs, I'd keep her.
    What did you order from Murray Mc?
    Wish I could order some...I have Silkies and I am always afraid the quality will be way down so don't use hatcherys.
    Your hen is pretty I think
    Hey! What kind of horses????? I'm really a horse lady but chickens are pretty important to me too!

    Quote:We ordered their assorted special. So I will have a lot of work for the people that know their breeds. My girls want to show and that seemed like the best way to get a few different even possible rare breeds. On top of the 25 I ordered 2 RIR pullets and 2 BR Pullets and my daughter fell in love with the Turkins so I ordered her 2 pullets and 1 roo Turken. Then of course McMurray sends one other bird but our package should have all those so next Friday I will have work for those that know their breeds! I have known quite a few people that have used Mcmurray and been very happy! I havent heard one negative thing about them. The only thing that stinks is the packages are straight run so I am hoping I dont get 25 of 25 roosters!!

    I love all animals thus I think I am crazy I have to many [​IMG]. I have a 24 year old Quarter, her 5 year old Paint Gelding, and a 9 year old Throughbred mare. So I am animal crazy or just crazy that has yet to be determined [​IMG]
