A friend of mine, who doesn't use computers, is looking for one or two Red Golden hens of breeding age. If you have any to sell, I will pass on his contact number to you so you can deal direct with him.
Thanks.

Well, rock my socks, I guess any pheasant people would have known exactly what this was, I certainly did not, I thought of a chicken hen. I guess if someone said that they were looking for a bronze hen, someone that didn't know that was referring to a turkey hen, would have thought the same thing, smiling that big smile.....just gotta read through things a little more closely I guess Shocked . Anyways, thanks triplej, you helped out a very confused gal today Cool have a wonderful one, CynthiaM.

I have three hens right now, but I wouldn't want to sell them to you, or your friend.

Tsamis and I bought these RG's at an auction, when we got them home, within a few days I noticed that two of the three hens have some sort of neurological disorder.
compared to the third hen they constantly bob their heads, one wing droops, and they twitch every now and then. Despite these obvious issues, they are very healthy. Rather friendly to boot, compared to the third one who is super skittish.

They were laying eggs last year, but not sure about the fertility of them, as they were laid few and far in-between.

Let me know if you come across any as I am also looking to introduce a few new hens.

Johnny if they are twitching their heads, they may have ear mites. Maybe put a couple drops of ivormectin or noromectin in their ears, wont hurt if that isn't the case.
