    Well I knew TSC would be getting chicks anyday, and TSC is just down the road from where I work, so at lunch I decided to stop in. Well 45 minutes later I had a box of 6 chicks sitting on the floor in my office with my desk lamp shining on it [​IMG] So, to add to my already 4 week old cuties we have 3 Black Australorps and 3 Gold Laced Wyandottes; all pullets. I now need to stay away from there. DH says there is no more room in the inn. I have managed to fill the new coop and we only completed it on Sunday [​IMG] The girl at TSC said they would be getting chicks every week for at least the rest of the month and they get them from Ideal Poultry. (but we are here in TX too)

    Here's the girls

    I went in there today & saw a HUGE batch of chicks & I was like NO...must keep walking.... [​IMG] I was wondering what all they had, so atleast now I have a good idea. I think you pretty much have the same selection there as we have here. There were those 2 breeds, and RIRS, and maybe 2 other breeds I couldn't figure out plus a bunch of pekins.
    If I hadn't gotten my shipment of Blue Rocks in the mail, I would have walked out with *something* [​IMG]

    I REALLY want some EE's and was sort of disappointed when they didn't have any. But now that I bought these 6 I'm afraid I don't have anymore room for them. Guess I'll have to sweet talk DH into another coop [​IMG] Think it'll work????
