I decided to take on the 1 year old RIR's and Buffs. Going to go pick up 40 of them on Sunday so now i have to bust hump and get temp hoop coops or something set up. Ends up being she got divorced and and was forced to sell her home therefor the chickens have to go to. She still has 120 or so to sell/place. I am going to take 30 RIR's and 10 buffs. The RIR's are picking on each other at the moment but by the way it sounds from her situation (she was crying as i was talking to her) that maybe her heart just isnt in it anymore since the divorce and forced sale of her home. She wasnt sure why they started picking on each other but did say that they have plenty of room and she feeds them all of the scraps from the local organic food store chains where she sells the eggs back to them for $5 a dozen. Didnt sound like she was feeding much else to them right now so i am betting from the information i have gathered with them being just 1 year old this month and fairly new to laying that its a good chance its a protein/nutrition thing. She said the buffs were doing fine just the RIR's having the issue so hopefully that rules out a mite/lice problem as it should be effecting them all if that was the case. Regardless i will inspect them well to make sure its not a lice or mite issue. She didnt want to price them to me as she just wanted them to go to a good home. She accepted an offer of $100 for my pick of 40 so i dont think that was to bad maybe i am wrong. Anyhow thanks for all the advise so far from you folks!
