, as far as that visit. I'm not wanting to buy chicks from TSC anymore. Lol
I'm south of you in Winfield, not that far to drive. It depends on what you're looking for as to whether I would have it or not. I'm still hatching & still filling orders at the moment but may have a few extras here or there or could hatch some for you if you aren't opposed to waiting.

I think the best way to train your chickens to come is to give them treats often. Mine come running from wherever they are in the yard if they see me come out the door & put something out for them. I also call them when I go out to feed them as well.

The happy side of things is the eggs are starting to hatch today....
Now to the sad bad...
Something hit main group of birds today, however the only thing we can find are spots where feathers are. No blood, bodies, bones or any other signs of the birds.
Haven't taken a full count yet but appears we have lost at least 8 birds.
Sea bright roo, cochin bantam roo, barred rock, 2 buffs, 3 americanas.
Any input on what my predator is? this was a daytime attack, probably early this morning around 8ish.
Thanks everyone in advance.
I'm sorry for your loss. I think it could have been a fox, usually coyotes don't come out during the day unless they're really hungry or have little ones to feed. I would say it was one or the other though rather than any other predator since they took them with them & you only found feathers.

Congrats on the eggs & your new chicks, it sounds like you have gotten the addiction the rest of us have, lol. Of course you know we're all enablers too.
I still have a hatch ongoing today, I wish the little critters would hurry up & hatch so I could take inventory. This hatch seems to be going a lot slower than they usually do for some reason.
