One of the local feedstores happened to get some Barred Rock chicks in today when I had to go for shavings. They were straight run chicks, very cheap, just $1.25/each, from Ideal. An older couple was looking at the chicks and when one of the chicks got out, I said something like, Back in there, Little Boy....the man said,"Oh, you know how to sex these?" Well, I sure do! Barred Rocks are my thing. So, the couple got sexed pullets out of the straight run bin without having to order 25 pullets, pay extra, and wait for Pullet Day, LOL. Bet the feedstore wouldn't be too happy with me if I stood there all day and sold all the pullets and left the baby roos, LOL! I got home and when I pulled the mail out of the box, there was a nice card addressed to Cynthia "Speckled Hen", LOL, from one of my nicest customers. Wonder what Mike the mail carrier thought.
