Being new to raising chickens.....I thought I was getting a good deal when I bought 75 baby chicks from a man who had listed chicks for sell on Craigslist at $2.00 each. My husband and I have been very busy with other things. He usually takes care of the chicks, and has been telling me how big the little monsters were getting. We were very happy and looking forward to be able to give our family and friends the eggs we expected the "girls" to lay. Well, we had some relatives over today and they asked why did most of the chicks have "spurs" and a few of the others didn't? We had never noticed those things before, so we had no answer. We know now! The guy is still selling baby chicks on Craigslist....and I guess he will probably find someone else to buy them, because we certainly won't be buying from him again.
