    I was at the feed store over the weekend and found out that they were only getting 25 of the 100 Buckeye chicks that they ordered. I asked for 4 and they said no problem, even though they weren't taking orders yet. pays to shop at the same place [​IMG]

    I agree. That's why I only shop at one feed store here. I pretty much get whatever I ask for no matter what. I like that [​IMG]

    Good luck with your Buckeyes! They are next on my "want list". Probably because I am a Buckeye born and raised, so I just feel they should be part of my flock!

    Oh My...have you had Buckeyes before? They are high on my list of chickens to have. I have space for 3 more types or will soon anyway..I am deciding between Buckeyes and Speckled Sussex....can anyone help me out with that decision?

    I just got a commitment from a small breeder for a dozen chicks next month. Its sooner than I want but I really want Buckeyes so that is what I will put up with. I have to get busy now buiding a chick box and the coop. Talk about putting the cart up front LOL

    I plan to keep as much of what I buy and do locally that way its quicker and easier to get help if needed plus deals like that.

    I never see chickens at our feedstore. We have a TSC but it is a really small one..seems to have just the basics of everything. Maybe if I go looking in Jacksonville they will have larger ones.
