Yesterday i was fortunate enough to purchase at Auction some nice White leghorns.
they are all very nice birds, all laid eggs yesterday either in their transport crates or in the pens at the auction and all the eggs are large and white., just as they should be.
The girls are all in perfect condition, so expect them to continue laying well, the Rooster unfortunately was covered so badly in lice, mites and eggs his feathers have actually matted to his skin.
He has been treated for the infestation, and as soon as the weather warms up, he will be bathed to rid him of anything that may have escaped the treatment.
They are currently in isolation to protect my birds from anything they may have been exposed to at Auction, and will be allowed to free range in the paddocks as soon as they get the all clear.
here is a pic, though not great.....
