    Apparently, it depends on local law and up to each store as to fulfilling those local laws.

    Don't believe there's a State Law in Texas regarding it, but our TSCs around here have a 6 chick and 4 duck minimum. Atwood's has no minimums that I'm aware of (and can attest to that as I bought a signle replacement gosling last Spring there)

    Arkansas has a 6 chick minimum. If you planning for 'maybe' chicks, remember that TSC sells straight run, and 1/2 maybe hens, and 1/2 maybe roosters. Have a plan for any extra roosters you get. Not saying you will get 3/3. You might end up with2/4 or any combo. I was lucky. I bought 8 chicks and got 5 hens and 3 roosters with TSC straight run.

    Here in PA there are no requirements. Ours were seperated so I bought all pullets and...they were actually all pullets!

    TSC doesn't do that here [​IMG] . We a have a Mom and Pop feed store that will. They get chicks one day a week, but they sell out about 15 minutes after opening. I was there 30 minutes before they opened, and 3rd in line. Around here, feed stores do not sell chicks after April, so it gets crazy.​
