I was surprised the North Windham store can't have live birds since they're closer to the whole rural East. Glad I called first.
Hope everyone gets to enjoy this beautiful day!
I love TSC! I go to the TSC in Griswold, they have chicks (resist resist resist!! lol). I got my first chicks last year, and the best thing I bought for my chicks was the little kit they have for $19.99, it has the waterer, the feeder, a little bag of feed, and the cardboard divider. Last year it also had coupons in it, they weren't that good though, I think I only used one of them. I brooded my chicks in a metal dog crate, and the waterer and feeder in the kit were the only ones I could find that have handles on them to hang from the bars of the crate. I also used the cardboard barrier as, surprise, a barrier (lol) because once the chicks decide its fun to scratch through bedding, they will SCRATCH through the bedding, and throw the pieces of shavings everywhere! Haha. Anyway, thats my piece of advice. :) When are you getting your chicks? Where are you getting them from?
