    I live in southern New York and I'm looking for a few baby chicks for Easter Sunday. Younger the better email me with details. Thanks

    Hi.

    I only ask this because some times people want chicks for Easter to give to children and have no intention of or idea of how to raise them. I'm sure that's not you, but just wanted to clarify...

    Our local feed store is not getting anything in Easter week. The place they are getting in their order from refused to ship any baby chicks out that week.

    Welcome!
    As a word of advice chicks for kids at Easter are a precarious situation.

    Unless of course you have chicken experience and know how to take care of them properly!

    [​IMG] many stores will NOT sell Easter chicks because come Monday most are dumped out.

    I noticed that my reply to the OP was copied a couple of times. I'm not the one inquiring about the chicks, but sent (an obviously poorly worded) question/reply to the OP just to make certain that the chicks were for their starter flock and not Easter gifts for kids...
