I am trying to decide on waiting until early April to purchase chicks from a local feed store when they receive them or go to the local Tractor supply which is scheduled to get chicks at the end of Feb. I have read that the Tss only carries straight run options. I know the local feed store personnel and I am guessing they know more about the birds then the "kids" working in the chain store. However the feed store tells me they only carry Ameraucanas. I know what breeds I would like to get but don't want to order at least 15 chicks from the hatcheries and pay $40 in shipping. Any suggestions. Thanks.
