Just talked to her and she said they're placing the 1st order on Thursday. She must have filled up a list of orders then!
Hey, sorry I don't log in very often, also in Berthoud.
I didn't realize the feed store changed owners, I hope the chick ordering works out for you. I am working towards a model where I hatch all my own chicks in the future, but it will be limited in breed, since I don't plan on running a hatchery. Anyhow, also keep in mind that the feed stores, like Murdoch's and Jax all bring in chicks you can go in and buy at the store. They generally are all medicated, so if that is something you DON'T want, then you need to avoid the feed stores. Not sure if Berthoud placed orders that included or excluded medication.
Anyhow, enjoy your baby chicks! I'll have to go visit the feed store, and see what's up. I'll miss Bill, he was a really nice guy.
Chicks are in from Berthoud Feed & Supply! Picked mine up this afternoon. She has extras, of course.
OK, catch up time.
