Hi everyone- I am a soon to be chick mama (9 chicks due to arrive 1st week in May). When I was ordering from local feed store they informed me that NJ law requires that I buy atleast 6 chicks. This was fine at the time because I wanted more then that any way. I was at TSC yesterday and found a breed that I was looking for but not avail at the feed store. I only wanted to buy 2- 3 pullets at the most. Unfortunately I was told again that NJ law requires a purchase of 6. I even tried showing him my receipt that I do have other chicks on their way-no go. My question is: what is the reason behind this? I don't have room for another 6 orI would have bought them. Just doesn't make any sense to me. Any thoughts????
