    ATWOODS HAS CHICKS, AGAIN ALREADY! AND IT'S AUTUMN!

    Me and my mom went to Atwoods to get chicken feed and thats what we saw as soon as we turned down the chicken feed isle. BABY CHICKENS! I begged my mom to let me get some, buuuuut... "No, I am not going to appempt to raise chicks through the fall and put them outside in the middle of winter." Oh, well... [​IMG] . She does make a good point; mom's really are smart, cuz I know I wasn't thinking like that.... I noticed they had speckled sussex and black giants. Oh, and I asked around, and, apparently they DON'T order from Ideal... or at least that guy said so... [​IMG]Mom said that I can get some in the spring if I take good care of the ones we have... sounds like a fair trade-out to me, since, uh, HOW COULD I FORGET MY GIRLS?! Lol.

    Cannot wait to gey some new biddies for our lovely flock... This is awesome. Has anyone else ever been excited to add chickens to their flock? I feel pretty alone with my love for chickens... [​IMG]

    Has anyone ever had their local Atwoods get shipments of chicks in Autumn? This kinda confuses me.

    But it is awesome to know that I will get some babies as soon as spring is here--[​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    I will definetly post pics of my chickies when I get them in the spring.... which feels like a million years away... I HATE WAITING! [​IMG] Please feel free to comment away, and to say whether or not your Atwoods has done something this weird.

    Excited is an understatement. I'm counting the weeks. I have the breeds I want picked out. I know the general date I'll be ordering for and the hatchery I'm getting them from. Heck, I even have some names picked out! All this, and my spring babies have just turned 3 months old. (Don't get me wrong, I still adore them! There's just nothing that beats little peepers in the spring... :love )

    I don't think we have an Atwoods around here. However, some of the nearby hatcheries have hatches scheduled up to the end of November. :confused: I guess if you have the coops available to keep them warm in all winter it could work out.
