    Hi! I was wondering if anyone has bought chicks from bomgaars? And do you know where they order from? And if you have did the chicks live? Were they healthy? Also is bomgaars chicken feed good?


    Thanks a ton!

    We buy all our feed from Bomgaars, and our hens (and chicks when we were raising them) did fine.

    We haven't bought chicks from them yet, since our local store didn't exist until after we already had the chickens. But we will likely purchase chicks from them this spring and will let you know how it goes.

    I would expect that different Bomgaars might order their chicks from different sources based on location.

    Our Bomgaars has an experienced chicken keeper on staff, so I would tend to trust wherever my local store buys its chicks.

    We have since 2012. Ours have been healthy. I just bought 2 silkies from them last night. We have had good luck with Bomgaars. We live in a rural area but really don't have many choices to buy chicks, I was considering buying some online but really didn't want or need 25 chicks and our P.O. sucks so don't feel comfortable doing that. We have 7 chickens 2 guineas plus our new baby silkies. All came from bomgaars. I just wish they had more selection. I went back today to get a few more chicks, they were sold out. So I'm happy we got our silkies yesterday.
