    Is anyone in the Hartford area looking for free baby chicks? We are hatching them in my classroom and the farm that supplied the eggs does not take chicks back. Would anyone like to give them a home? We will only have about a dozen. Thanks!

    Try contacting the Thomaston grain and feed. The owner is a sweetheart and probably knows someone who is looking. I just got my new girls from him in April. I assume you mean Hartford CT.

    If You don't fell comfortable doing that or have no luck moving them yourself. Contact me. I know several chicken owners in Bristol and can probably find them homes.

    I'm getting the chicks from the UCONN poultry farm. I'm not sure what breed they are. If anyone could give me the contact information for farms in the area it would be a great help. I am hoping to get the eggs today so we can be sure to hatch them before the school year ends.

    Wait until they hatch and then repost this.
