    Welcome to BYC!

    March is the kickoff to chick season (In my opinion). Have you ever had chickens before?

    You have definitely come to the right place. [​IMG]

    Not sure, depends what our local Orscheln store has to offer. Does anyone know if the chicks are sexed at these stores? Wanting good egg production.

    Out to pasture
    Shoppers / kids kind of mess them up in bins, pick up one put it back in the wrong place. Kinda iffy about sexes and breeds being correct in the bins. Some breeds cannot be accurately sexed before 4-5 mos.of age (silkies).
