    Had to go get some more medicated chic starter yesterday. I asked the guy behind the counter if they sell baby chics and he said yes, they are over there in the corner. I go look at them and couldn't resist. He came bag with my bag of food and said you get 10 free chics with each bag purchased. OK, make that 2 bags of food. LOL These new ones are mixed Leghorn and Barred Rock. Now I have to build more coops outside. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I lost track, as they get bigger I will figure it out. I am trying to keep certain breeds together so I build the coops as needed. I couldn't turn down free chics. LOL! [​IMG]

    Well, no you can't turn down free chicks. I was always 2 steps behind in the housing needs for my chicks and had them inside much longer than I wanted. I think that's pretty common though. [​IMG]

    Free chicks I think I should move to your town. My local feed store doesnt want to give anything free and they are related to me.[​IMG]

    Ed last year at that same store they had ordered the broiler specials cause they are cheap and they were nothing but Roosters that the hatchery needs to get rid of. I hope you don't have all Roos. Like said before if you want to eat them that should work out.

    Well, I hope not but they said that they were from someone locally that incubates them. I will let you know. If I do get too many roos, There is someone I know that wants them. [​IMG]

    Well that is great. I know they oredered from McMurray last year. I hatched some quail eggs for the man down there last year and he wanted to give me some quail eggs but I am just not interested in quail.. They were like bumble bees when I opened the lid to the Bator.
