I have room for a few more!
Look at their chick calendar. That's just what the are expecting now, but there are always surprise ones coming in. Long line forms on the first Saturday morning!
That's a good list.is that for all tsc?
No, an independent store. Been here longer than I have. I got my ducks from them when I was about 10 years old!
We had a TSC open a few years ago. I buy feed there, but when I saw the chicks one year, they were not in good shape. I explained about the pasty butt that the majority of chicks had and what needed to be done or they would die. The person working seemed concerned, but also clueless. They had it set up so people (kids) could go and pick up any chick. They never got put back in the right bins either. Even if it costs a little more, I will support my local feed store that takes care of their chicks.
