In today's email from Cascade Farm and Supply: Thursday, September 12, 6pm. FAll CHICK SEMINAR AND HALF OFF ALL CHICK SUPPLIES
...how does one resist such insidious temptation? We could buy one of those cute little coop/run things, set it up, and buy baby chicks.
We are both going, "No no no no - we wait until next spring so we have all fall and winter to build a strong, safe, sensible coop and run, then next spring we buy the chicks."
But we went in yesterday to shop for fencing for the yard and OMG they are SO CUTE!
Give us words of strength and encouragement, please! :oops::barnie

Go in the store, and just "evaluate" if the yellow chicks are cuter than the black ones? How about the little fuzzy chipmunk striped ones?

Then how do they sound ... cheep, cheep ???

Are you thinking of only getting four, or six? Maybe "cheaper by the dozen"???

Ha! Your sunk! No getting out now, ENJOY those little cute fuzzy butts before they grow up! ;)

Post pictures of the ones you get please! :frow

Sure I am ... those poor little chicks need all the help they can get!

Just think ... the store will close, and all the people will leave, leaving those poor defenseless cute little fuzzy butts all alone ... maybe the water gets turned over ... who us gonna not let them die of thirst? Nobody to hear their frantic cries of death ... or the power/heat goes out ...

Now ... if they are tucked away safely at home in a nice brooder, they will wake the nice people up in the next room to come and save them ... ;)

Hurry! The store is gonna close soon ... don't wait till tomorrow, it maybe too late :(

Aart said it! Seriously, we got our first chicks while still building the coop/run. Weather delays had us scrambling to keep them secure. Lots of stress.

Build first!!!!

Also, we have tons more space in coop and run than the minimum recommendations. It’s only our second year with chickens, but we’ve had no bullying issues - maybe luck, but I’m going to bet that lots of space helps! So don’t settle for a too small, unsecure coop.

The great thing is chicks are always adorable :) They will be just as cute (and more enjoyable!!!) when your coop is done! Stay strong!
