So, I have caught this debilitating disease which causes an extreme yen for chicks; and sadly, I have passed this incurable disease onto my 11 year old son. He became extremely bitter and accused me of lying to him when TSC didn't have chickies in when they said they would. Luckily, I managed to avoid the daggers that shot from his eye sockets! Of course, they did get chicks today. However, they sold out before we could buy some... I think he has put a hit out on me! Hopefully they get some more in ASAP, or I believe I will continue to be in great peril! Does anyone know if the TSC's in a certain area all get the same breeds of chicks or does it usually vary greatly from store to store? I have one 10 minutes and another 25 minutes from my house. I have most of the basics; food(20%) and feeder, brooder, heat light(red), thermometer, pine shavings, waterer is there anything else I should definitely buy to start? The Dumor food TSC had is not medicated, is there something I should buy to counter this? I don't want anything to happen to my new babies....my son would cull me for sure then. Thanks in advance for all your help and enabling!
