There is a law in NYS that you must purchase at least 6 chicks if they are under 8 weeks old. I assume this is to prevent people from giving one chick as a gift to a kid for Easter. However, I was really only planning to start my new backyard chicken hobby with 4 chicks. Does anyone know if there is a way to get the local Tractor Supply or Agway stores to sell me just 4 chicks, if I show them the receipts for the coop I just bought, and all the materials for a hen house? I was even thinking, heck, at only $4 each, I'll be happy to pay for 6 and only take 4. Think that would work?
