I went to look at to buy 6 "red stars" 1 year old, woman had them on craigslist and it was close to the house. So I go there and went into the pen that the "red stars" were in, they are certainly not red stars, they were small and looked like they had been beat up...missing feathers...I asked what was wrong with them, the guy says it was from the roosters, so I tell him I will take a couple of them but they didn't look so good, so I picked out 2 of the better looking ones and he shows me some more birds in another pen, about 1/2 of these birds looked good, so I pick out another 4 hens...get them home and notice one of them the legs are really scaley, and now 4 days later, out of 6 hens I'm getting 3 eggs a day, I wonder if I picked out some old hens?? how do I tell? I feel like I rescued them and they are nice hens, my stepdaughter has named them all and walked around with "Casey" most of Sunday LOL...I'll send some pic's when I get home...poor things...
