    Can anybody remember what is "typically" in the red pullets bin at TSC?

    It's Friday night, so that means Mexican for dinner and then next door to TSC. I have time on my hands again, so might see about a couple more chicks - not brave enough to try ducks since I need girls.
    I don't really care about egg laying - we have plenty of eggs when either the ducks and/or chickens are laying. I'm getting about 3-5 a day right now from 3 chickens and 2 ducks (the other 3 ducks haven't started laying again).
    I do want friendly though.

    And I know they usually have a red pullets bin, a pullets bin and the the breed (or breeds) of the week that is straight run. Hard to search on my phone while I'm there... crap signal.

    Sadly, it can be anything. 'Red pullet bin' is generally production reds, but today at our local TSC (NJ) the 'red pullet bin' contained what were most likely red sex link pullets. In my experience TSC is POOR at breed ID.

    I was there today and checked them out. The darker ones are Rhode Island Reds. The medium one are New Hampshire Reds or Red Sex Link.
