Yesterday I got an email... Perhaps you might understand why I got annoyed! *posted for your enjoyment* 1st message I received: "I would love two chicks for my children on Easter in April =) Please let me know if you have any tiny yellow ones for Easter. Thank you!" (minus their name and number of course) My reply: "Hi I tried to give you a call but I didn't get an answer. I would like to clarify your message: Are you wanting to give your kids a toy chick for Easter or are you wanting to have chickens for meat/eggs? I don't sell chicks as toys. For this reason I wont have any 'tiny yellow ones' just in time for Easter. If your interested in keeping chickens for their eggs or meat I can help you.. but not if its just to have your kids play with and then dispose of. This wasn't sent to upset you but merely to clarify what your looking for. " Their reply to my message: "No I wanted to get them chicks as "pets". Never said toys. And yes I plan on keeping them until they die of old age. We have a backyard for them and everything they would need. But I will take my business else where." (SERIOUSLY doubt that... lets get real here....esp since unless you live outside of city limits like me you cant have chickens here) My response: "First and foremost: I'm not in the chicken 'business.' I'm a simple hobbyist and I don't make money off of my chickens. And I'm quite sure you can imagine what comes to my mind when I receive a message wanting two 'tiny little yellow chicks' for their kids for Easter. It causes alarm bells to go off for me because I care for the welfare of my birds. If I was in the chick 'business' I wouldn't care and I would just simply chuck two day old chicks at anyone with money. If you don't want anyone asking clarification... just go to the feed stores and get your chicks, they care about money and nothing else." And the last message from them: "That's exactly how I feel. Sorry I asked. Have a good day!" ********* Shall I take that to mean you don't want people to find out that you only want to give your kids a live toy to then have die from your lack of ability to care for it or desire to deal with an adult chicken... I think so. This is why I screen people. Seriously now... lets get real here.
