    I talked to my local store today and they get theirs from Ideal and they will be getting chicks on Tuesday until chick days are over.So all of you that have a store getting them from Ideal I would be there on Tuesday to get the best pick.

    I'm in VA and the Tractor Supply near me said they won't get theirs in for about another 2 - 3 weeks!! They said they're suppose to get 150 chicks, ducks and rabbits. Can't wait to see the chicks! [​IMG] Guess the 2 - 3 week wait just gives me time to get a set up for them because I'm pretty sure that I will not be able to resist not coming home with at least 2![​IMG]

    Both local TSC stores are not getting their chicks until 2nd week in April! Seems to me TSC is not thinking clearly this year. Would be advantageous to get them in around easter. Everyone is asking for them now.

    Both local agways will be getting chicks in about 10 days. One from MM and the other from Privitt.

    If getting from tractor supply call they are all on thier own schedule, some will have next week ours wont have till last week of march, so yours could be anywhere in between. If it is a distance call first dont go just because you see on here that TSC has chicks. [​IMG]

    I would suggest checking with your local store to find out when they start getting them.My point was if your store was getting them from Ideal then they get them on Tuesday's.Geez people.

    Our TSC and all the other local stores that have chicks around here, all get them from a small in state (MI) hatchery called Townline. They are fine for layers and meat birds, but not if you want anything to show, even 4-H, or anything out of the ordinary. They have a very small selection and their bantams, though purebred, come mixed. You can not choose certain breeds.

    Maybe I can talk to one of them and convince them to try another hatchery.
