    OMG the fates conspire against me!! The feed store nearest my house sold out 400 chicks last week in 3 hours. They said to return next week.

    Tomorrow they're getting EE, RIR, BSL, and BR. I want EE, BO, BA, and BSL.

    The nearest one that is getting what I want is in Olympia, 30 miles to the south. And work is 35 miles to the north. I'm going to spend a LOT of time on the road tomorrow.

    Sooo… early morning trek to Oly tomorrow in order to arrive at the feed store by 8, when they open. Guess I’ll treat DBF to breakfast for putting up with me.

    Good luck. That's quite a drive up and down I-5. Hope traffic is flowing.

    You might want to call the feed store this afternoon , mine sometimes gets them the afternoon before so they are out and available already in case that's a better time for you.
    Also to make sure they got their shipment before you do all that driving! Good Luck!
