When do they typically hold "Chick Days"? I asked in our TSC yesterday and the employees didn't know! I don't know what's going on, but it seems that ever since they rebuilt the TSC in Sanford, NC (the one that was destroyed by the tornado on April 16th, 2011), the folks they have hired are not helpful nor friendly. I'd rather travel 50-100 miles out of my way to go to one of the older ones I used to get things from years ago. I was, however, told I could go online and make an order there and have it delivered to the store in Sanford (??chicks???)...
I think I'll stick with getting my chicks from private owners/breeders here on NC/BYC forum and from a different feed store (Carolina Town & Country) in Sanford that already has had a wide selection of chicks arrive. I purchased 6 SLW 2 weeks ago and had 1 not make it the first night, but during the storm w/o power last weekend, I moved the 5 remaining into the house in the kitchen area next to the den w/ the fireplace and wrapped the brooder in towels to retain warmth for the 18 hours we were w/o power (shed where they were went down to single digits inside). THEY ALL MADE it - even tho the house was NOT warm by any stretch (double layers in comfy clothes and lots of blankies on our bed that night!).
Nice selection of new chicks yesterday at CTC, but I'm getting 4 from another source this afternoon, so can't get any from the store... :)
