    We were going to check out the new birds at the feed stores today and both of them had new signage for their birds. At tsc they had red chickens with a disclaimer saying that it could be a rhode island, new hampshire a couple other or red sex link. bantums were straight run misc and two unlabeled tanks. the other place, which i cant spell, had black sex links a few unnamed, rainbow layer pullets (which looked like a assortment of reds Barred rocks, orphs and a weird looking grey thing), and bantums. We arent in the market for a new bird, yes i know chicken math, but if we were getting more it just seemed real iffy as the what we would be getting this time around.

    I was at TSC today buying chicks and they had ducklings. There was a teenage kid asking what the brown and yellow stripey duckling were and the guy said they were marked as "ducks" from the hatchery. I wonder if that's how they get the deals they get?

    Maybe they ordered a mixed assortment and don't know what is what.

    They were marked "ducks"... That is too funny.
