    Went to the TSC today to get some tractor pins and low and behold, they have chicks. They also had 2 kinds of ducks. the only chicks they had were TT's and Cornish Rocks. We will have to wait a few weeks, we need some White Leghorns. We got rid of one chick, she got crazy. we gave her to the neighbor, and he loves her. He has a rooster that might have solved her crazy. can't wait til we get some new little ones. they are very intertaning. happy chicky day

    I went to TSC today also to get equipment for a brooder and they were out of all their chicks and ducks. They were selling RIRs I believe. I do not know about the ducks however.

    A good idea for dealing with chicks which have been shipped:

    Tractor Supply sells this. Available online at many places including JeffersSupply.
