    My feed store is getting another batch of baby chicks...says they have been so popular this year. It's nice you can order what you want 1-however many. Don't you think it is easier to raise them when it is not so cold outside? I got mine the third week of June, and did not have to worry about the cold weather, and they could go out in the sunshine for a bit on a nice day. I guess you have to get them when they are available in your area, but later was better for me.
