    I called the feed store this morning, innocently. I just wanted to "check and see" if they had the chicks that I might want. Well they didn't. Phew! That was close. But then, they told me their "sister store" in the next town had the ones I was looking for. Hmmmmm. So, I called them and sure enough, they had them. I decided that I needed them. So, we loaded up in the van and drove straight there. I decided ahead of time that we wouldn't get more than 15 chicks. Well it was a good thing we went straight there because we bought the last 10 Red Stars that they had. Oh, yeah, we also came home with 10 Black Stars. [​IMG]

    Thankfully I have a very understanding DH.

    I TOTALLY understand the need. I needed to order chicks...but they won't be in until the 17th or 18th...BUT the store will have some in (breed unknown) on the 9th. Do I go get 3...and then put them with the babies...or wait..

    Okay, I have full plans to wait. I do have 13 coming but it is so hard to wait know that I know that the store will have them in. But then I think...3 more won't make much difference...I think I need to stay out of the store until mine come. *sigh*

    You have cute babies [​IMG]

    I need April to hurry up and get here. Chicks get shipped April 15 and our local feed store gets them in April 1. Havn't told my husband yet. We might have to stop in on the 1st and pick up something we need and a couple chicks to test brooder out.
