    Even though I have two incubators full and two brooders full of chicks (and ducklings), I'm going to make a trip to TSC today!

    I hope that they get the same selection as they did last year.

    Here is my list (not like I'll really stick with it, lol):
    4-5 RIR pullets
    a trio of buff orpingtons (maybe)
    any and all Dominiques (for my uncle)
    a handful of silkies (hopefully in colors I don't have)
    another sultan or two
    a few odd colored cochins

    If they have ducklings, I'm going to try to get at least one maybe two khaki campbells and 3-4 white pekins.

    What a way to spend a paycheck!

    I like your list! I'm going today too. They will be so glad to be done with me. I have been calling like crazy to find out when they are coming in. Good luck today.

    LOL! I have to run to the local farm store to pick some stuff up after work, and my wife looked at me as I walked out the door and said, "Read my lips, NO MORE CHICKS!" [​IMG] If she meant that, then why is she sending me to the farm store? [​IMG]

    Just an "enabler" note to help out all of you who are going to a TSC in KY. I was told by the manager of our local store that in KY it is a state law that they cannot sell fewer than 6 chicks to any one person. Something to do with them being considered livestock and not pets and they don't want you buying your 2 y.o. a pet chicken. I thought this would be helpful excuse . . . I mean helpful information when explaining why you brought home so many chicks![​IMG]

    What I don't understand is what's wrong with a child having a pet chicken?[​IMG]
