"Grand Opening all week!! Kids under 10 get free chick on Saturday!" How could any ignore this?? I stop by this new store this morning to see what they have and hopefully find out what kind of chicks will be available. I was in total disbelief!! Owner was cleaning up dead chicks like crazy. Bin they were housed in was terrible: very little bedding, waterer was empty or too dirty to even look at, no food containers, and no lighting of any kind!!! These chicks are about 1 week old. (They arrived last Wednesday morning). I went home so upset and couldn't get those poor little babies out of my mind. I go back to the store and take with me Cackle's "Guide to Raising Chicks". I told the man what he needed to do immediately if he didn't want to lose the rest of them, and left my name and # so he could call me if he needed any help. I am withing 5 miles of this store and could be there ASAP! Before I left, I bought 4 girls, Golden Buffs that came from Meyer Hatchery. I already have a brooder set up with 2 chicks so I just added these. After getting some heat and fresh water, they are running around chirping and pecking at everything. My hubby is going to kill me!!!
