    Stopped to get feed today and discovered chick days are here ! Time for me to stay out of the feed store . I did come home with 3 ( would have been more but my hubby was there to stop me from bringing home a full box lol )
    So I got one straight run partridge cochin , 1 white jersey giants pullet and 1 black jersey giants pullet :) a tleast if I get my usual one or 2 to hatch this weekend they'll have a few friends :)

    I keep seeing people post about the variety of breeds available at TSC, but all I have ever seen is leghorns, standard 'reds', and the occasional barred rock at my local stores. On the other hand, I guess it's a blessing in disguise. It keeps me from coming home with 70+ fluffy butts!

    The lack of variety would definitely help the addiction lol Ours is a Murdochs and I'm actually amazed they have some different things . Last year they had mainly gold sex links and leghorns ( they went on sale for a $1 a lot so I was always coming home with more )if that's all they'd had today I'd have had no problem walking out [​IMG]

    The TSC in Roanoke had chicks this weekend. They were half price on Sunday. In VA the minimum purchase is 6. They didn't have much variety but they had order forms for many different breeds.

    Yeah at a buck I couldn't really go wrong lol Hubby's Sil was working there and would always tell me when they went on sale which was way to often someone way over ordered !

    zazoom783 Wow thats a lot of chicks in a trough ! That's cool they let you order in different stuff in Murdochs does but they have a very high minimum for special orders . I tried to order guineas last year and I had to get I think 20 at like 7 bucks a pop was way more than I was looking to spend .
