That is bizarre...while it seems like an interesting idea, I don't think it's very smart on the sellers end to be selling chicks, risking them catching some sort of illness/disease while away from his/her house and then returned. Birds can be carriers of sickness as well...to have all sorts of chicks away and then brought back from all over is just WAY too risky!!! Besides this! $5/chick isn't a deal...and even if you get $2 back, $3 isn't that great either...I don't personally like the idea just because it's too risky!
These are live little beings and need to be taken care of and treated properly... How would you know they were being taken care of.... I would be sooooo worried about them. And one all alone without little buddies?? EEkkk.
You couldn't make enough money to mess with this, think of all the people, etc. you would have to deal with. Not to mention the stress on the chicks.
Did you notice, they had the chicks on newpaper, no paper towels, etc?
People nowadays don't give enough thought to the well being of God's creatures.
