    [​IMG] [​IMG] I went to my local feedstore today to get some grower, grit for the indoor batch, and a few treats here and there. I had to of course look at what chicks were left over from last Thursday's shipment. There were some of my favorite breeds, but in one of the bins there was ONLY ONE LITTLE CHICK! It looked so sad!! I almost cried, and definately almost took it home. I didn't even see if it was a rooster or pullet bin, but I didn't care. It was all alone in the big brooder!

    Darn myself, RIGHT before we got to the feed store I had turned to my friend and said VERY seriously, "Do not, WHATSOEVER, let me get ANY chicks!" I made her swear.. I have a few pullets outside in the coop, plus four more 9 week olds inside the house brooder (quarantine they are new). Plus I still have to rehome 2 of my Wyandotte pullets. So I was very serious when I told her this.

    Little did I know there would be one lonely chick!! My friend is an animal lover, but she gently pulled me away and kept changing the conversation to what feed I was buying. Good friend (I guess lol!) but I felt bad. So.. Anybody in Sacramento area there is one lonely chick, I think a jersey black giant pullet, at Bradshaw Feed.

    I am an enabler... ::hangs head:: [​IMG] [​IMG]

So you gotta go back tomorrow and get it....if God is putting this on your heart, that means the little chick was meant to be yours and its still waiting for it's "mama" to come pick him/her up !!! So promise us that you're gonna get it because its breaking ALL of our hearts now ! I betcha that was your soulmate chick !!! LOL !!!! Seriously.....go back.
