    I had written to Corporate a couple of times and called them...no answer as to putting a "Save our chickens" petition in our local store.
    Finally Dianna met Debbie who worked there and she said they would love to put our petition out for peeps to sign.
    Well,it seems that Tractor Supply's store manager has stopped Debbie from doing our petition.They say that the petition to "save our chickens" doesn't have anything to do with them.That's kind of ironic,as they made the most $$ this year from us "backyard chicken folks".They even admitted that this past "chick season" was the biggest phenomenon they had ever seen.
    So I know for sure they have lost at least 2 customers to Futrals http://www.futralsfeedstore.com/home.html

    It might be against their policy to post political stuff.

    C in C - is Futrals able to post your petition? I sure hope so. Political or not, TSC's manager is hurting their business by ignoring how chicken owners losing their flocks DIRECTLY affects TSC's bottom line. Businesses that don't take the time or effort to consider their customers' needs don't deserve loyalty. Maybe they'll change their tune when next season is dismal! Good luck and good for you for sending them the message!

    Quote:Yes, futrals is not only posting our petition and let us set up outside to get signiatures in person, but they are sending a rep to a Chickens for beginners day we are having in a couple of weeks! We will certainly be recomending them to everyone there and our local Gardening club
